Among others, challenges include the ability of communities--especially low-income communities--to finance projects needed to (1) repair or replace water infrastructure, much of which has was constructed more than 50 years ago; (2) comply with new or revised federal regulatory requirements; and (3) address damage from natural hazards and improve resiliency to extreme weather events."
