WQ eligibility survey and intended use plans

State Revolving Fund annual eligibility survey

The annual eligibility survey process is conducted online through the Colorado Environmental Online Services (CEOS) system. Colorado’s State Revolving Fund drinking water and wastewater programs provide affordable financial assistance for water and sewer infrastructure design and construction projects throughout the State of Colorado. Eligibility to secure this funding begins with the annual eligibility survey.

  • The next survey submittal timeframe for 2022 is June 1, 2021 through June 30, 2021.
  • Access the survey via the CEOS portal. New users will first need to create their CEOS user account. See instructions below.
  • The survey is used to identify the 20-year capital improvement needs of all publicly owned water and sewer systems, private nonprofit water systems, publicly owned stormwater systems, and non-point source projects throughout Colorado.
  • This survey is the first step in the State Revolving Fund application process.
  • The survey is not an application, and completing it does not require that you apply for financial assistance.
  • When the survey is complete, your system’s infrastructure needs will be identified and included in Appendix A Project Eligibility List of the below Intended Use Plans. The plans are updated annually and are effective January through December. Entities seeking funding for their water and sewer projects must be included on the applicable list prior to applying for funding.

Stimulus planning

This year we recommend all systems complete the eligibility survey to prepare for any potential federal stimulus funding made available through the SRF programs. Only systems included on the eligibility lists will be eligible to receive stimulus funding through the SRF, therefore it is particularly important to complete the surveys this year through CEOS. As more details become available information will be posted here. Please use the “Stay informed” link below to receive email notifications on this matter.
