- The Case for Fixing the Leaks: America’s Crumbling Water Infrastructure Wastes Billions of Gallons, Dollars
Great Lakes Region Urged to Adopt Improved Water Management Practices
Every day in America, we lose nearly six billion gallons of expensive, treated water due to crumbling infrastructure. Leaky, aging pipes and outdated systems are wasting 2.1 trillion gallons annually. That’s roughly 16% of our nation’s daily water use. Or, enough to swallow several major American cities whole:
- Manhattan under 298 feet of water
- Minneapolis under 172 feet of water
- Cleveland under 122 feet of water
- Milwaukee under 104 feet of water
- Detroit under 70 feet of water
- Chicago under 43 feet of water
The Center for Neighborhood Technology (CNT), a Chicago-based nonprofit focused on sustainable cities, today released a report titled The Case for Fixing the Leaks, part of a collaborative campaign focused on Great Lakes states, calling for leadership in improved water management.
