While most of us recognize the importance of water to our lives and lifestyles - what we value to a lesser degree - are the processes, equipment, and facil- ities, the water utility inf, astruc- ture and services, the deliver safe water to otir homes, work- places, schools, and other facili- ties. Because drinking water and wastewater services areso reliable in most communities, we often take them for granted. It is important to remember the value of tap water service for delivering public health protec- tion, fire protection, support for local economies, and the quality of life we enjoy, as well as aneed to invest in water infrastructure. Accordlng to the Water Envi- ronment Federation's, "Water's Worth" there has been a lack of attention concerning protecting drinking water and wastewater systems in discussions about environmental issues, declining federal and state investment in water projects, and the failure of current utility rates to reflect the true cost of serv/ce. There is a strong need to address water shortages and failing water delivery systems.
