State Revolving Fund (SRF)
The State Revolving Fund (SRF) was established for states to provide low-interest loans to its communities for water quality improvement projects. The SRF is divided into two areas: the Clean Water State Revolving Fund (CWSRF) and Drinking Water State Revolving Fund (DWSRF) programs.
The CWSRF provides loans for the construction of municipal wastewater facilities and implementation of nonpoint source pollution control and estuary protection projects. The DWSRF provides loans for the installation, upgrade, or replacement of infrastructure to ensure the provision of safe drinking water, the protection of public health, and improvements to aging infrastructure systems experiencing a threat of contamination.
To determine funding needs, a Clean Watersheds Needs Survey and a Drinking Water Infrastructure Needs Survey and Assessment are conducted every four years. These surveys determine the amount of funds that will be needed for construction of wastewater treatment facilities and the replacement of aging infrastructures.
