The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency announced early last week the award of more than $20.9 million to Nevada for improvements to wastewater and water infrastructure.

The EPA awarded the funding to Nevada’s clean water and drinking water State Revolving Fund programs. The funding is supplemented by state initiatives.

Collectively, this funding provides low-interest loans for wastewater and drinking water infrastructure projects. According to the EPA, as money is repaid into the revolving loan fund, the state is able to fund other new infrastructure projects.

“These funds will be used for 30 local projects that will boost the economy while improving water systems,” said EPA Pacific Southwest Regional Administrator Mike Stoker. “[Tje] EPA is committed to investing in local infrastructure that will benefit the communities we serve.”

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency announced in an emailed press release early last week the award of more than $20.9 million to Nevada for improvements to wastewater and water infrastructure.

Nevada’s Drinking Water State Revolving Fund received $12.9 million for improvements to public drinking water infrastructure.

The state’s Clean Water State Revolving Fund received roughly $8 million to use toward water infrastructure improvements, including Douglas County receiving a loan to upgrade a pre-existing wastewater treatment facility, which will provide increased capacity for over 6,000 residential, industrial and commercial users.

Hawthorne, Nevada, will also receive funding for the design and construction of a water treatment wetlands facility. The project will use green infrastructure to better nitrogen removal and reduce groundwater degradation.

“The State Revolving Fund programs are a critical resource for communities of all sizes throughout the state,” said Nevada Division of Environmental Protection Administrator Greg Lovato.

“Communities can obtain funding for water and wastewater needs that maintain health, reduce water loss in the arid desert, prevent pollution in our natural resources and sustain economic vitality in Nevada's growing economy.”
