On July 29, the U.S. House of Representatives approved H.R. 5118, the "Wildfire Response and Drought Resiliency Act," which includes $90 million a year for five years for water efficiency and water loss programs. This portion of the Act was pulled from the “Water Efficiency, Conservation and Sustainability Act" that Alliance for Water Efficiency (AWE) helped write.
This legislation now heads to the Senate for approval. AWE has been a persistent advocate for greater water efficiency and drought management funding at the federal level, and it is pleased about this encouraging development.
