Sciens Capital is pleased to announce that it is sponsoring America’s Water, the Columbia Water Center’s annual event to bring together thought leaders, executives, policy makers and investors for a dialogue on solutions to the U.S. water infrastructure crisis.

 
The American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) estimates over $1tn of investment is needed to improve the country’s aging water (D grade) and wastewater (D+ grade) infrastructure, which is in dire need of repair:

     

  • 21 Million people in the U.S. use community drinking water systems that violate limits for giardia, E. coli, arsenic, and lead.
  • Nearly 3,000 communities have been found to have lead poisoning rates at least double those recorded in Flint, Michigan.
  • 45% of Water Systems are expected to be in Poor or Worse Condition by 2020.
  • ~240,000 water main breaks per year, wasting over 2 trillion gallons of treated drinking water per year.
