EPA water chief Grumbles discusses infrastructure, wastewater blending

Will Congress restore funding to the Clean Water State Revolving Loan Fund? And how should the U.S. EPA proceed on the controversial issue of wastewater blending? Ben Grumbles, head of the U.S. EPA's Office of Water, weighs in on these questions and looks ahead to possible agency action on new arsenic and perchlorate standards.
