EPA Webinar – Using State Revolving Funds For Source Water Protection
February 2, 2022 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm
Feb. 2, 12-2 p.m. MST
State Revolving Funds offer numerous ways to support and encourage the implementation of projects aimed at the protection of source waters. Kara Goodwin, US EPA, will open the session with a national overview of SRF-related tools currently available to environmental entities interested in source water protection.
The Drinking Water State Revolving Fund program (DWSRF) funds Source Water Protection through two different optional set-asides: State Program Management (10%) and Local Assistance and Other State Programs (15%). April Byrne, US EPA ORISE Fellow, will showcase recent source water protection project eligibility and spending trends within these two set-asides. Potential increases to the DWSRF capitalization grants in the future would in turn increase opportunities to fund source water protection efforts. Learn how to maximize these two set-asides to benefit source water quality.
With most of the state of Nebraska sourcing their drinking water from groundwater, Tatiana Davila, Nebraska Department of Environment and Energy, will share how Nebraska is utilizing DWSRF Set-Asides for groundwater protection and capacity building for education and outreach programs.
Faced with increasingly frequent and intense wildfires, Lindsey Jones, Arizona Water Infrastructure Finance Authority, will present an overview of how Arizona is using CWSRF to thin forests in an effort to protect watershed health and source waters for the City of Flagstaff.
All are welcome!
Federal, State, Tribal, and municipal government staff, private sector professionals, nonprofits, and watershed organizations.
