The agency awarded $17,992,000 to Idaho’s Drinking Water State Revolving Fund and $8,738,000 to its Clean Water State Revolving Fund, with funding provided by the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law.

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) awarded the Idaho Department of Environmental Quality $26,730,000 to protect and improve water quality and infrastructure across the state. 

Idaho’s Drinking Water State Revolving Fund received $17,992,000 and the Clean Water State Revolving Fund received $8,738,000. All the funding is a result of the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law.

“Once again, the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law is providing a once-in-a-generation funding opportunity that allows EPA and our partners to improve water quality and infrastructure,” says Casey Sixkiller, EPA Region 10 Administrator. “We’re laying the groundwork today for future decades of clean water for the people of Idaho.”

The funds were awarded Dec. 28 and are intended to provide low interest financing to plan, design, and construct water quality improvement and protection projects, drinking water treatment projects and the infrastructure needed to protect human health.  

“The Idaho Department of Environmental Quality appreciates the ongoing support from EPA to protect and improve water quality and infrastructure across our state, and we welcome any assistance that helps make these services more accessible and affordable for our communities," says Idaho Department of Environmental Quality Director Jess Byrne.
