Trump signs American Water Infrastructure Act of 2018 into law
Pres. Donald J. Trump signed the American Water Infrastructure Act of 2018 into law on Oct. 23, almost two weeks after it made it out of the U.S. Senate.
The Water Infrastructure Act of 2018 authorizes $3.7 billion for dredging, flood risk management and storm damage reduction. The new law also provides funding to combat aquatic invasive species, restore the Everglades, mitigate harmful algae bloom events and reform how the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers prioritizes its projects.
