With declining federal funding for water projects, State Revolving Funds (SRF) provide low interest loans to public and private entities to improve drinking water and clean water infrastructure across the US.
US $6.5 billion has been requested from the State Revolving Fund funds in the South (43% for drinking water projects and 57% 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 Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia, and West Virginia highlighting total water systems and past water and wastewater violations.
