What to Expect from Trump Administration on Water – a highlight of Tracy Mehan article


It’s always tough to speculate on an incoming administration and how a political shift will impact various sectors.  A Bloomberg BNA piece by Tracy Mehan of AWWA, does as good of a job as I have seen to understand how the Trump administration may behave in the space impacting the water sector.

I won’t give away details – I would suggest you read the article for yourself – but I will say that Mr. Mehan is optimistic about the attention give by Trump on water infrastructure investments, but this optimism is tempered with caution that, “it may be less than promised, but it will be significantly more than the nation has seen over the past decades.”  An open question that remains is how regulatory streamlining will occur in the context of the proposed “one in, two out” policy on regulations.
