Rebuilding Infrastructure.

Our urban society revolves around the use of infrastructure, old and new. Some of our most valuable infrastructure is directly exposed to water or directly threatened by rising waters. To rebuild our bridges, railroads, tunnels, ports, harbors, dams, water treatment plants, and power plants, water control is not only needed but plays a vital role.

Infrastructure requires a multitude of work to ensure its longevity and role in society.

The Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA), law H.R. 3684-
The bill passed in November 2021 invests in infrastructure to create a resilient, sustainable future. It’s expected to create millions of jobs to stimulate national economic activities.

Aging infrastructure has a critical role and needs continuous maintenance and restoration. Depending on multiple factors, water may affect the maturing of certain infrastructures depending on material, design, construction, exposure, but also on the maintenance needs. Some of the factors include corrosion, freeze-thaw cycles, erosion, and chemical reactions, inevitably aging and possibly damaging the infrastructure.


The bill provides federal funding to infrastructure projects, allocated to be distributed on both state and  local levels. Some projects outlined to be supported by the bill include:

  • bridge repair, replacement, and rehabilitation
  • protection against droughts and floods and for investment in other weatherization to reduce the impact of climate change
  • including flood mitigation assistance grants.
