Higher energy costs, aging underground systems, increased demands for fewer public dollars, new knowledge about ecosystem services, and anxiety over the climate are causing authorities, experts and citizens in the US to take a fresh look at water infrastructure.
For its International Ecological Policy Dialogue on 18 to 20 June 2007 in Madison, Wisconsin, the US Multi-State Working Group on Environmental Performance (MSWG) invited R. Andreas Kraemer to present European experiences with infrastructure finance, cost recovery, and tariff reform.
