EPA Reveals $2.6 Billion in Clean Water IIJA Funding

EPA has announced over $2.6 billion from the Clean Water State Revolving Fund for various projects aimed at enhancing wastewater, sanitation, and stormwater infrastructure .

The White House press release highlighted that a total of $7 billion has now been allocated for these initiatives.

The Bipartisan Infrastructure Law’s investment of almost $13 billion in wastewater funding to upgrade essential systems nationwide addresses the health risks posed by inadequate wastewater and sanitation facilities .

Furthermore, the release underlines the success of the Closing America’s Wastewater Access Gap Community Initiative.

Since 2022, EPA and the Department of Agriculture have collaborated with 11 underserved communities to address the disparity between capital improvement needs and available funding to carry out necessary projects.

For instance, Lowndes County, Alabama, received an $8.7 billion loan, fully forgivable, to repair failing wastewater infrastructure serving 650 homes.
