NJ Receives $70M for Wastewater / Drinking Water Systems Upgrades

New Jersey was awarded nearly $70 million by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to support a range of water infrastructure projects to safeguard public health and the environment. New Jersey will use the funds mainly to upgrade wastewater and drinking water systems throughout the state. This award, combined with previous EPA awards granted to New Jersey, plus a 20% match by the state and repayments from prior loans made to the New Jersey Clean Water State Revolving Fund (CWSRF), will make about $510 million available for clean water infrastructure projects in the state.
