Water Infrastructure Projects Designated in EPA Appropriations: Trends and Policy Implications

Description:

This report discusses appropriations for Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) water infrastructure programs, focusing on
congressional special project designations in the account that funds these programs. While some Members of Congress, interest groups, and Administration officials are critical of these types of congressional actions, there is little indication that the practice will cease. Information on the programmatic history of EPA involvement in assisting wastewater treatment and drinking water projects also is provided in two appendixes.
