CWSRF PISCES Program: Performance and Innovation in the SRF Creating Environmental Success

The Clean Water State Revolving Fund’s Performance and Innovation in the SRF Creating Environmental Success (PISCES) program allows assistance recipients to gain national recognition for exceptional projects funded by the CWSRF. Participating state programs each nominated one project that demonstrates one or more of the following evaluation criteria:

  • Water Quality, Public Health, or Economic Benefits
  • Sustainability
  • Innovation

Projects eligible for recognition may be any size but must have an executed assistance agreement in place. Projects may be operational or in the planning phase. After all project nominations were reviewed, EPA selected five exceptional projects for further recognition. These five projects demonstrated excellence in matching the PISCES criteria and pushed the envelope for being innovative in using the CWSRF to achieve clean water for their communities. Several additional projects closely demonstrated this level of innovation and are recognized as an Honorable Mention. 

See the PISCES news release.

We hope you enjoy learning about the 2018 PISCES projects and that they inspire continued state and local CWSRF success. For more information:
