NAWC Executive Director Michael Deane Addresses Food & Water Watch’s False Claims

Posted on by Marybeth Leongini

A piece from NAWC Executive Director Michael Deane posted last week at The Hill, a widely read Washington, DC publication. The op-ed, titled “US Water Infrastructure Challenges Need Private Sector Participation,” is in response to a recent piece in the same publication from Food & Water Watch’s Wenonah Hauter in which she criticized any infrastructure proposal that relies on private sector participation. In his piece, Deane sets the record straight, noting that private water models already serve 73 million Americans and that private water companies are already investing to rebuild America’s infrastructure. Noting that the ASCE recently gave America’s drinking water infrastructure a D grade, Deane calls on Hauter to stop demonizing the private sector and to come to the table with real solutions to fill the investment gap.
