Will New Administration Mean a Rise in Repair?

Posted by: Jaclyn Deter

What does the future of America’s aging infrastructure repair look like? No one can be certain, but with a new administration that has made claims to a $1 trillion investment across the public and private sectors, it’s time to consider what that could mean for industry stakeholders. With the investment emphasis being placed on both creating new and repairing capital assets, engineering firms and asset owners alike will look to benefit over the coming years.

After two consecutive years of declining sewage and waste disposal spending, according to, 2017 and 2018 estimates are showing signs of life and can expect to see increases of 4.8% and 6.5% in spending in this year and next, respectively. With water supply and takeaway systems requiring some of the most immediate attention, municipal systems may be the first see some of those investment dollars.

With the predicted influx of investments, storm and sanitary system asset owners would be wise to look first to rehabilitation solutions before pursuing entirely new systems. By using high quality, eco-friendly rehabilitation materials, the efficiency and quality of existing infrastructure can be dramatically improved, while also extending the life of these assets and lowering the total cost of ownership.
