Event Description:  

The Link Between
Water Infrastructure & a Healthy Business Climate

Maintaining a healthy water infrastructure system is crucial for a healthy business environment here in Somerset county and throughout New Jersey. The majority of the water infrastructure we rely on today was installed after World War II, although some areas have pipes in the ground dating back to the 180's. Much of our infrastructure has reached the end of its useful life and needs to be repaired or replaced.

This program will examine the connection between a healthy water system and a strong economy. President Hanna from the Board of Public Utilities will be our keynote speaker followed by a panel discussion with industry experts on how to make our water infrastructure the cornerstone for a sustainable and prosperous future.
