Water Headlines for June 1, 2009			
Mike Shapiro 
Acting Assistant Administrator for Water

In This Week's Water Headlines:

1) Announcement of the New State Allotment Percentages for the Drinking
Water State Revolving Fund Program for Fiscal Years 2010 through 2013
EPA is announcing the revised Drinking Water State Revolving Fund
(DWSRF) allotments that will be provided to the states, the District of
Columbia, Puerto Rico, U.S. Territories, American Indian Tribes, and
Alaska Native Villages if the President's budget request for Fiscal Year
2010 is enacted.  These allotments reflect the results from EPA's most
recent Drinking Water Infrastructure Needs Survey and Assessment, which
was released on March 26, 2009. The revised allocation percentages
affect DWSRF Program appropriations for the four years from Fiscal Years
2010 through 2013.  

Each state will receive a minimum of 1% of the national allotment funds
available to states as required by Congress. The President's budget
request for FY 2010 includes an increase in the minimum funding to be
made available to American Indian and Alaska Native water systems from
1.5% to 2.0% of the total funding appropriated for the DWSRF. The
President also requested an increase in the minimum funding to be made
available to United States Territories from 0.33% to 1.5% of the total
available to the States, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico. 

The goal of the DWSRF program is to provide states with a financing
mechanism for ensuring safe drinking water to the public. States have
used federal capitalization grant funds to establish loan programs from
which assistance is provided to public water systems. Eligible
infrastructure projects include upgrades of treatment facilities,
eligible storage facilities, and transmission and distribution systems.
Projects to consolidate water supplies may also be eligible. Since the
program began in 1997, states have provided nearly $14.6 billion in low
interest loans for more than 6,000 projects.  

The second major purpose for which a state may use its capitalization
grant is funding "set-asides."  States are allowed to reserve up to 31%
of their capitalization grant for a variety of specific purposes
designed to further public health protection under the SDWA. Examples of
activities that can be funded through set-asides include: technical
assistance to water systems, source water protection, operator
certification, and enhancing the ability of systems to operate
successfully in the long term.  

Information about the Drinking Water State Revolving Fund program can be
found at http://www.epa.gov/safewater/dwsrf.html 

2) FY 2010 National Water Program Guidance is released 
The National Water Program has released the final FY 2010 National Water
Program Guidance.  This Guidance describes water program priorities and
strategies, including the suite of water performance measures and their
targets, for the coming fiscal year. The National Water Program thanks
stakeholders who have provided comments on the draft Guidancein March
for their contribution to the revision of the draft document. The final
Guidance is available at http://www.epa.gov/water/waterplan/fy10.html .
