Dear Chairmen Barrasso and DeFazio and Ranking Members Carper and Graves:


On behalf of the Healing Our Waters-Great Lakes Coalition, we thank both the House and the Senate for moving forward a Water Resources Development Act (WRDA) this year. With the Environment and Public Works Committee’s reporting S. 3591, the America’s Water Infrastructure Act (AWIA), and the recent House passage of H.R. 7575, the Water Resources Development Act of 2020, we appreciate both chambers keeping the Water Resources Development Act on its two-year cycle. This is an important step in funding and addressing water infrastructure needs across the nation and in the Great Lakes region.​es and is home to over 60 million residents across 13 states and the District of Columbia.
