Don't mess with the money: A look into the Clean Water State Revolving Fund

July 10, 2024
The Clean Water State Revolving Fund offers utilities a chance to secure low interest funding for projects, but the addition of Congressional earmarks and the redistribution of funding has resulted in some cuts.

The Clean Water State Revolving Fund (CWSRF) program provides financial assistance for projects that prevent pollution of state water.[1]

As of July 2014, both Drinking Water State Revolving Fund (DWSRF) and CWSRF are administered by U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

Clean Water Act amendments of 1987 authorized EPA to make grants to states to capitalize state revolving funds.

The CWSRF program changed the federal governments approach to providing assistance, including the change from federal construction grants to loans, and the change from federal programs to state managed programs.[2]
