New Jersey’s public water systems are in decay and our public health is at risk. The infrastructure falls $1.8 billion short of what we need to keep up with the water and sewer systems in New Jersey. The lack of public investment in our infrastructure threatens the safety of your drinking water now and the accessibility of drinking water for future generations. If we do not have public control, companies could sell off our water to the fracking industry and to other private interests, making it expensive for people to live and access clean drinking water.
New Jersey needs to create a dedicated funding source that will provide funding to keep the water infrastructure strong and durable. The fund will provide access to clean water and hopefully provide jobs. Our communities and townships lack local funding needed to invest in improving our decaying water infrastructure. Water needs to remain under public control so we can survive.
