Sheen Campus, St. Croix.
“It is vital for the U.S. Virgin Islands (USVI) to have an efficient and effective wastewater treatment process to avoid discharges in the environment and the beautiful waters of the Territory,” expressed Carmen R. Guerrero Pérez, director of the Caribbean Environmental Caribbean Division (CEPD). “We want to help eligible stakeholders access to Clean and Drinking Water Infrastructure funds which the Territory receives every year to develop reliable drinking and wastewater projects and advance progress towards President Biden’s Environmental Justice Strong Initiative.”
According to the EPA, in this workshop eligible applicants will learn how to navigate the process to obtain much needed funding to improve, plan, design, build, operate, or maintain wastewater treatment systems. This workshop will present case studies and group exercises to teach how to use construction grant funding to maximize the completion of important wastewater treatment and infrastructure projects.
