Increased funding comes from bipartisan infrastructure law
WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Kevin Cramer (R-ND), Ranking Member of the Senate Environment and Public Works (EPW) Subcommittee on Transportation and Infrastructure, announced the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) awarded $6,817,200 to the North Dakota Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) to the Clean Water State Revolving Fund (CWSRF) program.
The CWSRF provides low-interest financing for the development of water systems for communities, schools, parks and other projects. These projects improve and protect water quality and public health for communities throughout the state.
The bipartisan Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act specifically increased funding for North Dakota’s State Revolving Fund (SRF) programs to accelerate water infrastructure improvements. The bill authorized $200 million for clean water infrastructure projects and programs in North Dakota through the Clean Water State Revolving Fund and the Drinking Water State Revolving Fund.
