WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. — ITT Corp. published a new white paper, The Most Important Things You Need to Know about the Stimulus Package, which provides consulting engineers, as well as state and local municipal boards, with information and advice to embark on traditional and environmental infrastructure projects.
On Feb. 17, 2009, President Barack Obama signed into law The American Economic Recovery and Investment Act to stimulate the economy through an injection of $787 billion in federal spending, including $60 billion to support traditional and green infrastructure projects.
ITT has engineering and technology experience that has been instrumental to the creation and success of energy efficient clean water and wastewater projects around the globe, as well as equipment to make homes and commercial buildings more energy efficient.
“Communities around the country, from major metropolitan cities to rural small towns, are now working to secure funds to launch much needed infrastructure projects, such as drinking water and wastewater projects,” said Colin Sabol, vice president of business development for ITT’s Fluid Technology. “ITT has extensive experience with the planning and creation of such projects, and measuring how project success produces benefits to the health and economy of a community.”
The white paper includes a list of the key federal agencies involved in environmental infrastructure program implementation and project assistance; guidance about the resources available to help plan projects and deal with the expedited project approvals timeframe to ensure critical deadlines, the application of funds, submission of project proposals and construction start-dates; and an overview of a variety of the products available to be used in the construction and completion of environmental infrastructure projects.
