Water Industry Analysis

To help industry professionals stay on top of crucial developments as they unfold, and assess their financial and public policy implications, SNL Energy introduces the RRA Water Advisory Service, a series of comprehensive reports providing the insight you need to monitor the water sector.

The U.S. EPA has estimated that more than $335 billion may be needed to update, expand or replace current water delivery infrastructure in the next 20 years. Approximately 85% of the U.S. population is served by a highly-fragmented, municipally-owned water system. As operating requirements become more complex and capital spending rises, the inefficiencies created by this fragmentation have become more obvious, with regulatory agencies and industry leaders promoting the benefits of economies of scale, ongoing consolidation and use of “Public/Private Partnerships” to maintain the integrity of the water system.
