Water Leaks Strain Commodity Value as Web Campaign Begins
By Randall Hackley
Leaks and investment delays threaten the U.S. water system, exposing the value of a commodity that in short supply disrupts businesses, according to a web campaign.
The “Water is Your Business” site went live today, sponsored by the National Association of Water Companies and U.S. Chamber of Commerce. It urges companies to stop neglecting infrastructure upgrades as water use for energy and electricity production doubles worldwide in the next 25 years, according to International Atomic Energy Agency forecasts.
