WASHINGTON (AP) — The Environmental Protection Agency says nearly $400 billion in infrastructure spending is needed over the next two decades to ensure that Americans continue to have safe drinking water.

The agency says that thousands of miles of pipes and tens of thousands of treatment plants, storage tanks and water distribution systems are due for upgrades by 2030 at an estimated cost of $384 billion.

The EPA released its quadrennial Drinking Water Infrastructure Needs Survey and Assessment on Tuesday.

The EPA's acting administrator, Bob Perciasepe (pur-chuh-sep-ee), says the survey shows that many of nation's water systems are at least 50 years old and are approaching the end of their useful lives.
