Lessons from Flint: We Need More Funding, Better Collaboration

In the aftermath of the Flint, Michigan, water crisis, it’s necessary for the government and the nation’s citizens to recognize the critical state of our water infrastructure and make strides to improve and replace it.

SEH Regional Practice Center Leader Miles Jensen took a national stage weighing in on the country’s water infrastructure in the article “Flint Crisis Increasing Water Infrastructure Awareness, Not Opportunity,” in ACEC Engineering Inc.

He was hopeful government would provide the funding needed to fix the problem because water is a “human survival need.”

“I expect to see more collaboration among local governments and Congress to invest in ensuring access to clean, safe water,” he said.

We need to promote that we have the best, safest water systems in the world, and that we all need to come together to keep it that way.
