In an effort to provide manufacturers and their representatives with helpful information from the "Water and Wastewater Equipment Market Analysis Report," WWEMA has partnered with Janney Montgomery Scott, a full-service financial services firm.

Washington, DC, Nov. 24, 2014 -- In an effort to provide manufacturers and their representatives with helpful information from the "Water and Wastewater Equipment Market Analysis Report," the Water and Wastewater Equipment Manufacturers Association (WWEMA) has partnered with Janney Montgomery Scott, a full-service financial services firm.

The quarterly report includes the newly created WWEMA/Janney Leading Index, formulated to provide insight into the market and funding conditions related to municipal water and wastewater projects.

Covering the third quarter of 2014, the first report generally points to increased demand and funding in the very near-term, with flattening demand over time. Graphs and charts relating to six data-driven factors also depict data and trends dating back as far as 2005.

These factors, which helped develop the index and analysis, include: municipal bond issuance; municipal financial health/pensions; water and wastewater utility employment figures; water infrastructure equity performance; residential building permits; and ductile iron pipe pricing.
