Partnerships for Safe and Reliable Drinking Water
Capital improvements to our public water systems are critical to the long-term health and economic vitality of Washington's communities. Congress established a Drinking Water State Revolving Fund (DWSRF) loan program as part of its reauthorization of the federal Safe Drinking Water Act in 1996.
The program provides low-interest loans to eligible public water systems to build, repair, and redesign infrastructure. Funds are also available for preconstruction and consolidation grants and loans to prepare for infrastructure construction projects.
The Department of Health (DOH) currently administers these programs.
StoryMap of Project Profiles
We're advertising our successful projects in a more engaging way through a StoryMap: Improving Washington's Drinking Water, One Loan at a Time. This is a data-driven way to talk about a project and provides a map tour and synopsis of successful DWSRF projects around the state. Each point on the map links to a description and photo, with a link to more details. We hope this new way to communicate our successes inspires other drinking water systems to participate in our program and gives them new ideas for solving challenges they may face.
