Clean Water State Revolving Fund PISCES Program: George F. Ames Performance and Innovation in the SRF Creating Environmental Success Program
The Clean Water State Revolving Fund’s George F. Ames Performance and Innovation in the SRF Creating Environmental Success (PISCES) program recognizes CWSRF assistance recipients for exceptional projects and highlights them nationally. Participating state programs each nominate one project that exemplifies one or more of the following evaluation criteria:
- Environmental and Public Health Protection
- Community Engagement
- System Partnerships
- Innovative Financing
- Problem Solving
Eligible projects must have an executed CWSRF assistance agreement and can be operational or in the planning phase. EPA selects an Exceptional Project from the nominations every year for each of the five evaluation criteria categories. The remaining nominated PISCES projects receive Honorable Mention recognition.
