On Wednesday, U.S. Senator Kamala D. Harris introduced the Water Affordability Act of 2018, legislation that would help low-income families across the country pay for rising sewer and water bills. The Act would direct the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to establish a pilot program, named the Low Income Sewer and Water Assistance Program (LISWAP), to award grants for public water utility companies to assist low-income households with bill repayment. Eligibility for grant assistance would consider environmental risk factors and inequitable environmental burdens as part of the eligibility criteria.
Water is and should be a bipartisan issue, and state and local governments can’t shoulder the burden alone. Let’s make clean, affordable water an election issue, and get this bill out of committee.
