The American Concrete Pipe Association, the voice of the concrete pipe industry, announced today that it has joined the Sustainable Water Infrastructure Coalition (SWIC).

The SWIC is an alliance of corporations, public organizations, industry trade associations and others working to advance sustainable water and wastewater infrastructure policy through public awareness, education and advocacy. SWIC has been the lead organization advancing legislation that would provide up to $5 billion annually in private investment in water and wastewater treatment infrastructure projects by lifting these projects fromunder the state volume cap on private activity bonds. ACPA is committed to a sustainable water system and supports the work of SWIC if informing decision-makers and the public of the importance of funding this type of work.

“The ACPA is committed to a sustainable water system and supports the work of SWIC in informing decision-makers and the public of the importance of funding this type of work,” said Matt Childs, president of the American Concrete Pipe Association. “We firmly believe that state and local governments should be freed up to leverage private capital to meet these essential public needs, and PABs are an excellent vehicle fordoing so.”

ACPA is also a member of the Clean Water Council. CWC is a group of more than 35 national organizations representing underground construction contractors, design professionals, manufacturers and suppliers, labor unions and others committed to promoting sound environmental infrastructure and meeting the nation’s water and wastewater treatment needs.
