Absolutely, yet the funding will never occur. MWA is not a water company, they sell valves, hydrants. The pipe company was a water company. 50,000 water systems in US, the key is to follow the population growth.
Limiting immigration is slowing growth, in new housing, roads, and suburbs. We must allow the wealthy immigrants in, along with the poor ones, they all need water. The yankees messed up the north, and are moving south. The northern states are losing population because the yankees believe in socialism, high taxes, endless wars, and the suspension of the bill of rights. If the yankees would rebuild the cities they destroyed then the entire country would be better off. Just like Penn State, Notre Dame can't compete with southern football or southern education. The northern states are forcing everyone to pay for their incompetence and lack of skills. The northern states are not adding value, the northern yankees are not rebuilding their infrastructure, they are bankrupting the federal government.
It's one thing to say that the south has some excellent universities, which they do. It's quite another to say that northern schools pale in comparison to the education offered in the south. Your credibility tanked right there. I am sure that you are in no position to make such a judgment, absurd as it is. The idea that this is a black and white argument, in terms of good (southern education) versus bad (northern education) is indicative of someone quite limited in their thinking.
