As communities across the country prepare to launch major infrastructure projects funded through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA), ITT Corporation confirmed that it will meet the act’s Buy American provisions so its U.S. customers can access the company’s technology for water, wastewater and energy management.
Shortly after the ARRA was signed into law in February, ITT added a special section to its Web site at www.itt.com/now that highlights the company's readiness to assist with shovel-ready infrastructure projects. The company also published a white paper in March to provide straightforward information and practical advice about the ARRA to consulting engineers, as well as state and local municipal boards.
The white paper was originally based on draft guidance from the EPA and the federal Office of Management and Budget regarding implementation of the ARRA’s Buy American provisions. It has now been updated to reflect final guidance that was issued by the EPA in late June.
