EPA Releases Memorandum on DWSRF Priorities

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recently released a memorandum with its four priorities for the Drinking Water State Revolving Loan Fund (DWSRF):

  1. Achieve fullest utilization of funds through dynamic cash flow modeling;
  2. Market DWSRF opportunities to water systems;
  3. Employ both the DWSRF loan fund and set-asides as SDWA compliance tools; and
  4. Safeguard the programs public trust through fiscal controls and accountability.

Building on a federal investment of over $19.1 billion, the state DWSRFs have provided more than $35.4 billion to water systems through 2017. This assistance was provided through over 13,800 assistance agreements for a wide variety of water treatment and distribution system projects.
