WSC Celebrates Savings Act Law

On December 16, 2016, President Obama signed the Water Infrastructure Improvements for the Nation (WIIN) Act into law, which includes provisions of the Water Supply Cost Savings Act championed by the Water Systems Council. 

Originally introduced in the 113th Congress on September 18, 2014, the Water Supply Cost Savings Act ("Savings Act") was incorporated into the WIIN Act legislation earlier this year. Over the past three years, the Water Systems Council and its members worked to build bipartisan support in both the House of Representatives and the U.S. Senate. With this strong bipartisan support, the Savings Act was added as a provision to the WIIN Act.
