More than $50 billion is being invested into national water and wastewater infrastructure programs under the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, or BIL (formerly known as the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act).
The BIL will provide funds to upgrade water treatment facilities, replace pipes and other critical infrastructure, and ensure that America’s water systems are sustainable for future generations. The improvements will provide an economic boost with jobs, as well as assure up-to-date facilities and infrastructure are providing clean, safe water in Colorado.
The division updated two loan programs, the Drinking Water Revolving Fund (DWRF) and the Water Pollution Control Revolving Fund (WPCRF), in accordance with the BIL's provisions. Updates are available on the State Revolving Fund loan page and are posted below:
