EPA and Bureau of Reclamation Sign MOU for Funding Water Reuse Projects

Date: November 08, 2019

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and Bureau of Reclamation (Reclamation) announced a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to enhance federal collaboration on funding water recycling projects. The EPA provides low interest loans for water recycling through the Water Infrastructure Financing and Innovation Act (WIFIA) program and Reclamation provides cost-shared grants through the Title XVI Water Reclamation and Reuse Program. Under the MOU, the two federal agencies will seek opportunities to align processes and create efficiencies for recycled water project sponsors. The WateReuse Association advocates for robust funding for WIFIA and Title XVI and will continue to work closely with EPA and Reclamation in supporting effective implementation of these programs.
