WASHINGTON (AP) - The sweeping $1 trillion infrastructure bill approved by the Senate this week includes funding for Western water projects that farmers, water providers, and environmentalists say are badly needed across the parched region.

The Senate voted this week in favor of the legislation that seeks to rebuild America’s roads and highways, improve broadband internet access and modernize water pipes and public works systems.

The bill’s future in the House is uncertain.
