"I supported and voted for the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law because of investments like this one which will help ensure access to safe, clean drinking water for my constituents and communities across Nevada," Titus said in a statement.
Nevada is one of several states to receive funding via the EPA's fund. The agency found in its seventh infrastructure needs survey and assessment that the 20-year national need for states is estimated at $625 billion.
