EPA Announces $315M WIFIA Loan to Increase Water Treatment Capacity and Reduce Emerging Contaminants

Across the nation, there are 92 WIFIA loans financing $34 billion in water infrastructure upgrades, thus creating over 103,000 jobs.

According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, the Process Advancements at Omohundro and K.R. Harrington Water Treatment Plants Project in Nashville, Tennessee, will modernize two aging treatment plants that are increasingly subject to flood risk and need to accommodate growing demand for drinking water. Metro Water Services will install a new filtration system to address emerging contaminants, including per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) and pharmaceuticals. Additionally, Metro Water Services will undertake a series of other improvements that will increase overall treatment capacity by 50 percent, mitigate flood risk, add finished water storage capacity, and protect against power failures by installing generators as a backup power source.
