EPA Awards $15 Million to Assist U.S. Small Drinking Water and Wastewater Systems

EPA has awarded nearly $15 million to provide training and technical assistance to small drinking and wastewater systems – those serving fewer than 10,000 people – and to private well owners. The funding will help provide training and tools to improve small system operations and management practices, promoting sustainability and supporting EPA’s mission to protect public health and the environment. Awards include nearly $7 million to the National Rural Water Association and nearly $3 million to the Texas Engineering Extension Service, $2.5 million to New Mexico Environmental Finance Center, $2 million to the Rural Community Assistance Partnership, and $500,000 to the Rural Community Assistance Partnership. Many small systems face challenges in providing reliable drinking water and wastewater services that meet federal and state regulations, including a lack of financial resources, aging infrastructure, management limitations and high staff turnover.
