senate Bill S. 3021

Improving Drinking Water Systems & Reauthorizing Water Infrastructure Projects

Argument in favor

This commonsense, bipartisan bill will improve America’s drinking water systems while also enhancing the nation’s ports, canals, dams, and waterways.

I strongly advocate clean drinking water for everyone. I am disappointed that this bill doesn’t address the enormous problem in Detroit and other urban cities that have the same proven problem of lead/contaminates in their drinking water. Why aren’t privately owned beverage companies stepping up to provide immediate relief while projects for uncontaminated water are completed? Currently, several private foundations are doing the part in providing clean water for Detroit, but a permanent solution is needed. Are the Working Class and Working Poor not as important as suburban towns in the US?

All of our drinking water must be clean & safe. Congress must also fix the water problem in Flint Mich. & other areas.

Argument opposed

This bill doesn’t provide enough funding for the improvement of drinking water systems. Alternatively, these responsibilities should be left to states.

Why are so many different items lumped into one giant mess of a bill? We certainly need drinking water Infrastructure improvements. Hydro-dams are not friendly to the environment and wildlife and entire ecosystems. Improving ports for larger cargo ships, is generally free money and unethical bonuses to corporations. Unless we can charge appropriate fees to Corporations to offset some of those costs, taxpayers may not get much return on their investment. I’m all for protecting the ports for hurricanes and weather, but this is a place where the corporations who will benefit the most, should form a public/ private relationship and chip in their fair costs.

To much junk packed into one bill. And anytime I see the words "common sense" in front of legislation, I know there isn't enough real justification so politicians resort to manipulation. Let the states deal with their water systems and provide an option of Federal assistance because... Flint.

    Its important to update our water system to ensure safety and cleanliness. It’s also important to make sure water refineries don’t impact neighborhood air quality.

    Fix Flint and other cities like it, protect cities and towns on the coasts, and stop giving money away to big corporations. Stop holding needed services hostage to corporate welfare.

    All drinking water should be clean and healthy to drink.Hydro-electrict dams provide many positive and less costly solutions to water for farmlands and therefore the future cost of foods and clean water, recreation and lessens the problems associated with nuclear power. They can effectently produce power in growing, higher growth areas along with higher demand for clean water! Go back to what works best!!!

    Pay Attention Elected Officials! We must have drinkable water on this planet to survive. El Trumpo, our EPA & the mass Chemical cartels don’t think so, but it is a FAct. Atlas Shrugged times we live in now, we need to have our infrastructure working, secure & up to date!!!!

    Water is life’s blood and clean water should be of the highest priority. Since the administration does not agree with me and continues to deregulate we need to address clean water. However as I read the details I am hoping that the fiasco in Flint Michigan is included in the drinking water areas so they might finally get the help they deserve that has been moving so slowly since the unbelievable decision to appoint an emergency manager that poisoned the people of Flint.

    This should be a no brainer. Everyone needs water to survive. The condition of our infrastructure is antiquated and in bad shape.
