The article reports on the criticism of the U.S. Senate water panel regarding the proposal of the White House to allocate 688 million dollars in fiscal 2007 for an Environmental Protection Agency wastewater infrastructure grants program. The proposed cut would force localities to delay projects, which take years to build, and ultimately drive up construction costs because of inflation.
