By JAMES W. BROWNERPublished March 11, 2018 10:33:53A new study by a Michigan water management expert says it is time to consider replacing the country’s aging water infrastructure, including aging pipes.
According to a study conducted by University of Michigan water managers Dr. Paul Baugh and Dr. Mark Rochat, it’s time to take a serious look at how we treat water for human consumption.
The experts concluded that the nation’s water system is aging because it has no effective way to treat the waste produced from the treatment plants and the sewage that flows through it.
The study found that nearly half of the nation�s pipes and fountains were in poor condition, with more than half having corrosion issues, which caused pipes to fail or have water in spots where there was not enough pressure.
Baugh and Rochath wrote in the study that the aging infrastructure is the result of a combination of factors, including high maintenance costs, the lack of corrosion controls and the high number of contaminants and pollutants in the water.
Water system failures are increasing as the nation struggles with a population aging more quickly than ever before.
Water systems in most states are aging faster than any other system in the country.
They are also being replaced with newer and more expensive systems that require more maintenance.
Water systems in the Midwest and Northeast have been plagued by the same problems.
The Midwest has the lowest number of active water systems, and the Northeast has the highest number.
The new study found some states were improving their water infrastructure with innovative technologies to prevent corrosion.
Brough and Rocat said that although the United States has the best water quality in the world, it also has the worst infrastructure.
They said there is an epidemic of drinking water quality issues in the U.S. and around the world.
They found that more than 60 percent of the country�s drinking water infrastructure is in poor or very poor condition.
They wrote that many of these facilities have no effective corrosion controls or other corrosion prevention measures.
The problem has gotten so bad that they recommend the United Nations declare a public health emergency.
In the Midwest, Baugh said, the problem is particularly acute.
Baugh is president of the Midwest Water Development Association, a water advocacy group.
Rochat is a research scientist with the National Water Institute and director of the Michigan Center for Water Quality at Michigan State University.
He and Baugh are both based in Grand Rapids, Mich.
Rocat, who has done research on aging water systems at the University of Virginia, said he is concerned about how many water systems are in poor and/or very poor shape, as well as the amount of water that can be wasted.
The report said the nation has only about 5 percent of its water systems in good or outstanding condition, but that figure could double by 2050.
Rachat said he has spent his career studying aging infrastructure, and he thinks the aging system needs to be looked at.
He said many of the systems that have been identified are not old and need to be replaced, but he also thinks we should be considering new systems.
He said we should focus on upgrading our water infrastructure and making sure that our infrastructure works properly.
In a letter to lawmakers, Brough and Bough said there are still many critical infrastructure functions that have not been addressed.
For example, the vast majority of water distribution systems are outdated, and water distribution is the most important element of our water system.
We also have a poor and antiquated water system that does not properly treat sewage, and we need to make sure that this is being addressed.
Rough said it is essential to address water quality as a priority in the future.
“I believe it is critical that we invest in and improve the aging water system, especially the old pipes and the old systems, so that they are able to take care of the aging pipes and old systems in a timely fashion,” he said.
Ruth Brough said her husband Paul and his wife have worked hard to maintain a healthy family lifestyle and to live comfortably in a house with a large yard.
She said she wants to see the U,S.
lead the world in the efforts to make water safe.
“The quality of our public water is critical to our families, our communities and our nation,” she said.
Bough said his family has a long history of living in rural areas, and they often relied on water from nearby farms to get water to their homes.
Brough also said he would like to see improvements to the water system in his area.
Roche, the study’s author, said the most significant changes could come with improvements in the design of water systems.
The authors said that the new study shows that the need for modern, reliable water systems is not being addressed in a systematic way.
It needs to happen, he said, because the nation is losing water to our rivers and lakes, our streams, our aquifers and our oceans.
The researchers said that there are some changes that
