Water Mains: An Aging and Crumbling Infrastructure

Water infrastructure is invisible to people, but when one fails, it becomes incredibly noticeable. Atlantic City, along with the state of New Jersey, are seeing an increase in failing water and sewer mains, which can pose potential health issues amongst those living there. This growing trend is in part due to the age of the structures, as well as underfunding. The recent nor’easters have not helped the cause.

The cost of fixing the infrastructures, in the short-term, is high but the cost of doing nothing will be much higher in the long-term. Jersey Water Works, a cross-sector collaborative working to transform New Jersey’s inadequate water infrastructure through sustainable, cost-effective solutions that provide communities with clean water and waterways; healthier, safer neighborhoods; local jobs; flood and climate resilience; and economic growth, recently distributed a report detailing the growing concerns and what can be done to move New Jersey’s water systems into the 21st century.

The report can be found here.
