U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) invites State CWSRF program managers and staff, EPA Regional SRF managers and staff, water industry professionals, and utility staff and managers to join a webinar on the newly authorized Bipartisan Infrastructure Law (BIL) Clean Water State Revolving Fund (CWSRF) emerging contaminants funding.
During this webinar EPA will:
- Provide an overview of emerging contaminants and CWSRF funding eligibilities
- Present eligible fund uses and emerging contaminant project ideas, including monitoring activities
- Identify other funding sources for emerging contaminant monitoring and planning efforts
- Highlight potential CWSRF emerging contaminant projects being considered in several states
EPA is committed to partnering with federal agencies, states, Tribes, territories, and water utilities to address polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) and other emerging contaminants adversely impacting the environment and public health in communities across the country. BIL appropriates $1 billion specifically to address emerging contaminants through the CWSRF. This is a unique opportunity to prioritize investment to local communities that are on the frontline of contamination and that have few options to finance solutions through traditional programs.
This webinar will be recorded and shared with participants.
