McWane Senior Vice President and General Counsel Jim Proctor testified before the United States House of Representatives Transportation and Infrastructure Committee's Subcommittee on Water Resources and Environment during a September 26th hearing on Building a 21st Century Water Infrastructure for America: Water Stakeholders Perspective. Proctor told the Committee that much of Americas water and wastewater infrastructure is nearing the end of its useful life, and that more than $1 trillion is needed over the next 20 years to rebuild and rehabilitate these systems. However our water infrastructure challenges cannot be solved by simply providing more federal funding. A fundamental shift away from the traditional approaches must occur, through a combination of new sources of funding, greater accountability, and improved governance. For the past nine months an inclusive group of prominent associations in the water and infrastructure sector have been working together to discuss and develop a set of ideas that could provide this positive and transformative change. The participants in these discussions include the spectrum of publicly- and privately-owned systems, rural and urban communities, and drinking and wastewater systems. The scope and scale of Americas water infrastructure needs require a forward-thinking and creative response. Reform and reauthorization of Clean Water Act programs like the State Revolving Funds are crucial to that effort, and we at McWane are glad to have the opportunity to contribute to that process.

Clow Valve Company hydrant standing tall after Hurricane Irma McWane Ductile sales representative Gary Gula shared these pictures that he took when he returned home after evacuating for Hurricane Irma. This Clow hydrant was in front of the Ft. Myers, Florida winter estate of Thomas Edison, Henry Ford and Harvey Firestone (Firestone being the tire guy). Huge trees were brought down by Irma and littered the entire community. This past Sunday there were still approximately 300,000 in the county without power (including Gary). His power was finally restored late on Tuesday night after 10 days! Gary remarked It hasnt taken long to bounce back. The mall opened mid-week with most shops and restaurants open, but there are still quite a few traffic lights, residents and schools without power. Gary has been using his time and tools volunteering at the local school and little league park helping the league president deliver ice to local residents and clearing trees and debris from the fields. Volunteering has paid major dividends as the school and fields had power most of the week and Gary had an unlimited supply of ice from the concession stands.
