WateReuse joined nine other water and municipal sector organizations on March 8 in sending letters to House and Senate leaders urging strong funding support for the U.S. EPA’s Clean Water and Drinking Water State Revolving Funds (SRFs). The SRF programs are federal-state partnerships that provide communities a permanent, independent source of low-cost financing for a wide range of water projects.
As Congress begins to develop legislation to fund EPA in the 2017 fiscal year, the water sector has come together to remind legislators of the need to provide clean and safe water infrastructure while making local utility investments more manageable for ratepayers.
The letters to Congressional leaders note that providing strong funding for SRF programs will help our nation’s water and wastewater systems begin to address the billions of dollars of investment needs they face in the coming decades. EPA has reported that our wastewater systems face $271 billion in documented needs over the next twenty years—investments in publicly owned wastewater conveyance and treatment facilities, combined sewer overflow correction, and stormwater management. Drinking water systems require $384 billion in documented infrastructure rehabilitation and improvements over the same timeframe according to EPA, and over $1 trillion according to the American Water Works Association.
