about new investment in infrastructure across the country. the obvious question is what about new hampshire? i'm going to talk to my two guests about the need for infrastructure new hampshire. first let me go to this report card that was put out a couple of years ago, 2013, by the american society of civil engineers. here is new hampshire's infrastructure report card then. roads, c-minus, bridges, c. drinking water, c-minus, transit c-minus, sch these, waste water c-minus and hazardous waste c. that's a few of what are 19 different components of infrastructure in new hampshire. with me to talk about a couple of them are my guests, victoria sheehan commissioner of the new hampshire department of transportation, welcome. >> good morning. >> nice to have you here and tom from environmental service, welcome, nice to have you here. >> thank you. >> those marks that we put up on the screen, tom, are they still
8:42 am
infrastructure in new hampshire overall is fair to poor. we have a lot of drinking water systems that have been in place for many, many decades. some 50 to 100 years, waste water treatments plants around from 35 to 50 years. >> really? >> the pipes in the ground, this is incredible, they're clogged and leaking and we need to replace this and upgrade it and make >> i'll ask you about the money for that, victoria's roads and bridges, things we travel on every day, those marks, the same as they were back in 2013? >> yes, there has been a slight increase in investment in transportation, specifically at the federal level, they increased the allocation of dollars to new hampshire and we had the gas tax increase of 4.2 cent cents, but even though additional investments mean
8:43 am
>> and the riderless bridges. >> those are reaching the end of the service life and we try to address as many as possible each year and the number keeps increasing. fred: we're playing catchup as you said. >> yes, we've increased investment slightly, but unfortunately the number of bridges are expected to climb and condition of our pavement and roadways across the state remain about the same condition the next ten from for this infrastructure? we're talking a lot of money and state and federal money, but as you look ahead and you've been in this position for ten years and environmental services. where do you see the funds coming from? >> the funds are going to need to come from the same places they've come from before. federal, state and local governments, but we'll have to have a lot more of them. as we look out, the estimates and conservative estimates, we are going to need to spend at
8:44 am
b, to address our waste water, drinking water, storm water management, as well as taking care of dams. that's a very significant amount of money. and we've done that with state, grants and funds and local dollars as well, as a match. but in recent years, in fact, for the past eight years, we have not been able to fund any new projects here in the state of new hampshire. other than a limited number of projects we've american recovery and reinvestment act. and so, municipalities have really been largely on their own to try to finance these projects except for limited loan dollars. >> victoria, same question. where does the money come from from roads and bridges? i know there are several pots and you have some dedicated funds also. >> we're very much reliant on federal and state gas tax for infrastructure and that being
8:45 am
grant opportunities. most importantly, recently we qualified for a tifia loan program, a federal program backed by our gas tax and helped us finish widening 93 and bridges across the state. we're excite today hear that the conversations are occurring at washington. we're eager to see how much additional money may be coming towards the states, but at this happening very closely and we're hoping that the work that we've done to advocate for infrastructure investment will mean that this is no longer a partisan issue, everyone is supportive of the investment and recognizes the need. >> maybe it's bipartisan at this point, tom? >> i think that's right. it does appear bipartisan support for infrastructure investment. that's vitally important for all of us.
