Greenville Water Joins United for Infrastructure 2021 to Advocate for Infrastructure Investment

From May 10 to 14, 2021, infrastructure advocates will call for leadership to make better policies and investments.

All week Greenville Water is joining the national effort to raise awareness about the need for investment in the nation’s infrastructure.

Joined by hundreds of affiliates nationwide, United for Infrastructure 2021 will take place from May 10 to 14, led by U.S. Chamber of Commerce, Business Roundtable, American Society of Civil Engineers, AFL-CIO, Metropolitan Policy Program at Brookings, Value of Water Campaign, Building America’s Future and National Association of Manufacturers.

The week will include education and advocacy event series that will focus on how to raise awareness about the need to invest in transportation, water, communications and energy infrastructure, all around the theme “Lead with Infrastructure.”

Now in its ninth year, United for Infrastructure brings diverse stakeholders together to seek infrastructure reform by calling the nation’s leaders to bold action. The message of United for Infrastructure is that leaders need to deliver on policies and investments that jumpstart the economy and keep American families and workers safe whether on the road, flying in a plane or drinking water from the tap. The week-long event advocates for infrastructure policy and federal investment to support public health and safety and bring about resilient and equitable communities.

“It’s essential to recognize the vital role tap water plays in daily life, and if you live in Greenville, you’re lucky to have some of the best-tasting drinking water in the world,” said David Bereskin Greenville Water chief executive officer. “A lot of people work hard to keep it that way, from the expert technicians who install and upgrade Greenville Water’s underground pipes to the skilled workers who handle repairs quickly and with minimal disruption to lab workers ensuring the safety and quality of your tap water. We all take for granted that our drinking water will be there when we need it and that any issues in the water infrastructure system will be fixed before they impact our lives.”

Infrastructure investment must support all people for a prosperous economy and a better quality of life.

United for Infrastructure CEO Zach Schafer says, “The state of America’s roads, rails, pipes and ports is one of the nation’s most pressing issues, and our nation’s leaders must work together to invest in infrastructure that creates jobs that support families and allow communities to thrive. We’re proud of our broad and diverse coalition that is united in its mission to champion America’s infrastructure.”
