Earth & Water Group, co-hosted with GW University’s Environmental & Energy Management Institute (EEMI), kicked off the first in a series of impact discussions on February 18 with the inaugural event focused on the opportunities and challenges for public private partnerships (P3s) and private capital in the water sector.  Water leaders, including Tracy Mehan (AWWA), John Cross (Dept of Treasury), Frank Donnelly (Corvias Solutions), Michael Deane (NAWC), Dan Sugarman (KWP Capital), and Professor Royce Francis (EEMI), discussed the opportunities and challenges of the private sector working with local governments to ensure sustainable sources of water.  A special thanks to Corvias Solutions and NAWC for sponsoring the event.  John Cross, Associate Tax Legislative Counsel in Treasury’s Office of Tax Policy, discussed legislative developments, including private activity bonds and qualified public infrastructure bonds, and efforts by the Obama Administration to make tax policy changes to encourage more investment in water infrastructure.
