National Survey Shows Public Support for Clean Water Trust Fund

The Luntz Research Companies and Penn, Schoen & Berland Associates, Inc. released a national survey (PDF) on the public's support for clean and safe water in early March. The results of the survey show overwhelming support for long-term federal funding of the nation's clean water infrastructure. The survey, which encompasses seven states across the country, found that 86% of the public support legislation by the U.S. Congress that would create a long-term, sustainable and reliable trust fund for clean and safe water infrastructure. A memo describing the survey's findings has been forwarded to all members of Congress. In the survey press memo, Luntz stated that this issue is "very personal to voters because of the importance of clean and safe water to their daily lives. This is not a local issue because Americans understand that water has no local boundaries. This is one of those areas where Americans demand that Washington take responsibility."
