Kentucky environmental attorney says EPA awards $49,878,100 to Kentucky for wastewater treatment projects.

U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has awarded $49,878,100 to the Kentucky Infrastructure Authority. This new infusion of money will help the state and local governments finance many of the overdue improvements to wastewater projects that are essential to protecting public health and the environment across the state.

 

 The funds provided by the American Reinvestment and Recovery Act of 2009, will go to the state’s Clean Water State Revolving Fund program. The Clean Water State Revolving Fund program provides low-interest loans for water quality protection projects for wastewater treatment, non-point source pollution control, and watershed and estuary management.

 

At least 20 percent of the funds provided under the Recovery Act are to be used for green infrastructure, water and energy efficiency improvements and other environmentally innovative projects.
