The Interim Final Rule issued by the Treasury aligned eligible Water and Sewer Infrastructure projects with the eligibility requirements of the EPA’s Clean Water State Revolving Fund (CWSRF) or Drinking Water State Revolving Fund (DWSRF).
CWSRF includes projects that “construct, improve, or repair wastewater treatment plants, control non-point sources of pollution, improve resiliency of infrastructure to severe weather events, create green infrastructure, and protect waterbodies from pollution.”
Subcategories of CWSRF include:
For Water/Sewer infrastructure projects the County will require that applicants include either a Town Meeting or City Council vote authorizing the project, unless the project is fully funded from grants. The projects will be treated as advancements to the applicant and will require the grantee to report on a quarterly basis the status of the project, including expenditures.
