State Revolving Fund Budget Allocations, 2016-2017 (Midwest)

19 April 2017
Data Insight

With declining federal funding for water projects, State Revolving Funds (SRF) provide a key source of funding — through low interest loans to public and private entities — to improve drinking water and clean water infrastructure across the US. On average, state revolving funds make up 17%, or US$6.7 billion of total public spending on water and wastewater infrastructure annually.

More than US$12.2 billion has been requested from the State Revolving Funds in the Midwest (66% for clean water projects and 34% for drinking water projects). Bluefield water experts analyze the State Revolving Fund data providing a snapshot of the region, breakdown of requests for clean water infrastructure and drinking water, and profiles for each state.

Includes state profiles for Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Michigan, Missouri, Minnesota, Nebraska, North Dakota, Ohio, South Dakota, and Wisconsin highlighting total water systems and past violations.

This Data Insight is the first in our series analyzing State Revolving Funds across the US. Bluefield will be releasing similar analysis for the Northeast, South and West, available through our US & Canada Municipal Insight Service.

 

Takeaways

  • Across the Midwestern States, Illinois and Ohio comprise 35% of total requested project needs.
  • Illinois has the highest drinking water project need (US$932.5 million) while Ohio has the highest clean water project need (US$1.3 billion).
