Webinar Series Tackles State Revolving Fund

Posted on Tuesday, July 14th, 2020 | Posted in News

NEIWPCC is planning four webinars to train state revolving fund (SRF) managers and interested individuals from across the country. The series fills in for an in-person workshop, originally scheduled for later this month that is rescheduled for July 2021.

The first webinar, “Climate Resiliency and Adaption for Water Infrastructure,” will be held on August 4.

“We are excited to be involved in expanding learning opportunities in the SRF space,” said NEIWPCC Executive Director Susan Sullivan. “This webinar series will explore innovative ways to increase the overall capacity of funding made available through the program through state-specific case studies, and the opportunity to learn from others involved in all aspects of the SRF.”

State revolving funds provide low-interest loans for investments in water and wastewater infrastructure, nonpoint source pollution control, and estuary protection projects.

The two-hour online training will feature speakers from New Hampshire, Maine, and New York. Topics include:

  • sustainability programs for wastewater projects
  • implementing climate adaption plans
  • funding partnerships and incentives

The presentation will also include an in-depth technical review of work completed in Brownsville, Maine, and changes to water infrastructure projects following Hurricane Sandy.

The training is free and is open to SRF program managers and other interested parties.
