Investment In Infrastructure
By Pierre Mouchette | Bits-n-Pieces
President Joe Biden, on November 15, 2021, signed the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law (BIL), which dedicated $55 billion to represent the most significant investment in drinking water, wastewater, water reuse, conveyance, and water storage infrastructure in American history, including dedicated funding to replace lead service lines and to address the dangerous chemical PFAS (per- and polyfluoroalkyl).
On May 12, 2023 (latest report date), just eighteen months after the President signed the 'once-in-a-generation investment' in our nation's infrastructure, a Fact Sheet was released stating accomplishments to date.
Briefly, under the heading of Clean Water, the following was stated:
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is responsible for monitoring the Clean Water State Revolving Fund (CWSRF) under the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law (BIL). The CWSRF provides low-interest loans for water quality protection projects for wastewater treatment, nonpoint source pollution control, and watershed and estuary management. The EPA also provides $50 billion to its water programs under the BIL. Of that amount, $5 billion is appropriated to the Emerging Contaminants-Small or Disadvantaged Communities (EC-SDC) grant program.
With all of the babble stated, have you:
