Due to age, inadequate design, capacity changes, poor installation, corrosive soil, continual pressure stress, and other factors contributing to their consdition, water utility pipelines are now faltering and will continue to do so in the near future. This aging infrastructure is leaky, is prone to breaks, and is resulting in degraded water quality and increased water service disruptions. The water “infrastructure gap” refers to the difference between projected spending and necessary spending on water infrastructure. In the U.S., this gap is estimated to be over US$500 billion over the next 20 years. Experts estimate that water and sanitation infrastructure will require a global investment of $11.7 trillion by 2030.
