Environmental Protection Agency Funded Equivalency Projects

The Federal Water Quality Act of 1987 established a State Revolving Fund (SRF) Capitalization Grant Program. Federal Capitalization Grants are awarded by Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to states for deposit in a State Water Pollution Control Revolving Loan Fund.  From this fund, states provide loans to local governments and other entities for clean water projects.  Loan repayments then provide a continuing source of revenue available to localities for solving water pollution control problems.

Construction of wastewater upgrades, improvements, expansions and stormwater best management practices (BMPs) for the projects listed below, were financed by the Clean Water State Revolving Fund with funds equivalent to the amount of the federal capitalization grant for the fiscal years shown.  These projects will provide water quality benefits for community residents and businesses within these localities. CWSRF programs operate around the country to provide states and communities the resources necessary to maintain and improve the infrastructure that protects our valuable water resources nationwide.
