Clean Water State Revolving Fund (CWSRF)

The PENNVEST Clean Water State Revolving Fund (CWSRF) program provides funding to projects throughout PENNSYLVANIA for the construction and maintenance of wastewater treatment facilities, storm water management projects, nonpoint source pollution controls, and watershed and estuary management.

This program offers low interest loans with flexible terms to assist a variety of borrowers that include local governments, municipalities, and privately owned entities and to establish partnerships to leverage other funding sources.

The CWSRF program is managed under the Pennsylvania State Regulations for PENNVEST funding wastewater projects. In partnership with the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection, management occurs during project planning, application submission, contracting and financing, and site inspection and reporting.

The United State environmental protection Agency (EPA) provides federal oversight of the national CWSRF program in all 50 states and puerto Rico under laws, regulations and policy of the EPA Clean Water State Revolving Fund program.

Projects funded under the CWSRF program have been recognized for performance and innovation by EPA through the National Pisces Awards.
