Series: Water Resource Planning, Development and Management
BISAC: TEC010030

The Water Resources Reform and Development Act of 2014 became law on June 10, 2014. Its conference report resolved differences between the Water Resources Reform and Development Act of 2013 and the Water Resources Development Act of 2013. Policy makers have recently been considering several legislative options to help finance water infrastructure projects, including projects to build and upgrade wastewater and drinking water treatment systems.

This book examines one particular option, a “Water Infrastructure Finance and Innovation Act,” or WIFIA, program, which Congress included in the Water Resources Reform and Development Act of 2014. This book also summarizes congressional authorization and appropriations processes for the U.S. Army Corps and discusses agency activities under general authorities.
