image icon for Infrastructure Investment & Jobs Act for water and wastewater fundingAs most everyone in the water industry knows by now, water and wastewater systems are about to get a much needed funding boost over the next 5 years due to the recent passage of the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA) of 2021.

The following is a quick breakdown of relevant funding designations as it pertains to available Ixom Watercare solutions.


Relevant IIJA Funding Opportunities

$23.5 billion in funding will be made available through the existing Drinking Water State Revolving Fund and the Cleanwater State Revolving Fund. 50% of this funding (~$11 billion) are to consist of grants and/or principal forgiveness loans.

Another $9 billion in grants are designated to address per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) and other emerging contaminants.

It is expected these funds may be available as early as mid-2022. We encourage you to start project identification and development in preparation for this rare funding infusion.

Update: The US EPA sent a letter to State Governors detailing funding information including a state by state list of initial first funding allocations. It can be found here. Reference page 4.
