Biden Administration Announces Investment for Clean Water Infrastructure Upgrades
Biden-Harris Administration Announces $126,864,000 Investment for Clean Water Infrastructure Upgrades in New York, New Jersey, Puerto Rico and U.S. Virgin Islands.
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) announced over $126,864,000 from the 2023 Consolidated Appropriations Act for states, Tribes, and territories through this year’s Clean Water State Revolving Funds (CWSRF) in the states of New York, New Jersey, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands. The funding will help communities upgrade essential wastewater and stormwater systems to protect public health and treasured water bodies across the nation.
“Too many communities across the country are facing challenges with water infrastructure – from climate impacts like drought vulnerability, to a lack of basic wastewater services that everyone deserves,” said EPA Administrator Michael S. Regan. “President Biden’s Investing in America Agenda is getting unprecedented investments in clean water to communities that need them most. This funding paired with this historic funding from the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law will support local economies while advancing projects in communities to help ensure clean, safe water for residents.”
