The enactment of laws and regulations related to drinking-water quality, surface water discharge limitations, and wastewater treatment goals has required utilities to maintain, upgrade, or even replace their respective underground services. With Federal aid programs to support infrastructure financing reduced or eliminated, utilities are finding it necessary to seek other sources of funds or pass costs on to the consumer. The paper reviews how USEPA's regulations have affected and will affect infrastructure issues.
