USA Water's infrastructure issues

The USA desperately needs federal investments in infrastructure reports "US Food&Water" watch, which notes the lack of investment in public water systems over the decades that has led to unaffordable water service rates, and in some places, to water that is unsafe to drink or bathe with. Too many families over the years worry about whether water coming out of their tap is safe to give to their children. People deserve better than this.

Yet Trump wants to take advantage of this need to spin deals for his buddies on Wall Street.  It's disgusting. For years, Food&Water watch has partnered with communities to lift up the voices of those impacted by our crumbling infrastructure and demand real solutions. Communities deserve a right to have a say in how their infrastructure is maintained – and to know if Trump is making is friends even richer by building it.

In January, Trump formed an illegal "Infrastructure Council" — aka a massive corporate giveaway and attempt to sell American water systems, bridges and roads to the highest bidder. And *surprise* the Council's co-chairs (and real estate developers L2R)  Richard LeFrak (Photo: Studio Scrivo) and  (right) Steve Roth both stand to profit significantly from the deals they’re crafting. It's not only wrong — it's illegal.

It is believed that President Trump’s "Infrastructure Council" has operated in violation of the Federal Advisory Committee Act ever since he created it in January 2017.  We're suing Trump to void all actions taken by his “Infrastructure Council” and to compel the Administration to disclose the role its financially conflicted co-chairs have played in shaping the President’s infrastructure policy.

Food & Water Watch is proud to stand with communities across the country who are being impacted by decisions made in back-room deals. Food & Water Watch is powered by supporters. We don't take any corporate or government funding in order to stay uncompromised — a position that allows us to hold elected officials like Donald Trump accountable. It also means we rely on the support of individuals to fund this work (and pay lawyers!).
