MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Administrator Michael Regan visited Milwaukee Tuesday, July 6. He wanted to highlight the infrastructure deal crafted by a partisan group of senators and backed by President Joe Biden. 

Regan toured Pulaski Park with city and local leaders. They showcased Pulaski Park for how investing in water infrastructure can reduce flooding risk, improve safety, and restore habitat. 

Regan spoke highly about Milwaukee's efforts to clean up its rivers and waterways.

"Milwaukee is doing exactly what we want to see the rest of the country doing, looking at ways to marry jobs, natural resources, protecting the planet, protecting communities," said Regan. 

The infrastructure bill is still being negotiated in Congress.
