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.
More than US$34.5 billion has been requested from the State Revolving Fund funds in the Northeast (33% for drinking water projects and 68% for clean 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 profiles for Connecticut, Delaware, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island and Vermont highlighting total water systems and past water and wastewater violations.
This Data Insight is the first in our series analyzing State Revolving Funds across the US. Similar analysis is available for the Midwest, West, and South, through our US & Canada Municipal Insight Service.
