A fact sheet developed by the EPA Office of Water provides an overview of the Clean Water State Revolving Fund (SRF) program, authorized by Title VI of the Clean Water Act (CWA) Amendments of 1987.

MORGANTOWN, WV, August 31, 2001 -- A fact sheet developed by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Office of Water provides an overview of the Clean Water State Revolving Fund (SRF) program, authorized by Title VI of the Clean Water Act (CWA) Amendments of 1987.

Titled "Funding of Small Community Needs Through the Clean Water State Revolving Fund," this fact sheet discusses funding trends, including distribution of SRF dollars to small communities relative to total SRF funding during the past 11 years (also presented as a bar graph in Figure 1).

Two figures illustrate the relationship between SRF agreements with small communities and total SRF agreements, as well as the documented needs of small communities from the Clean Water Needs Survey. A table contains Clean Water SRF assistance in dollars and the number of agreements by community-size for fiscal years 1988-1998 for each state, with totals included for all states.

This four-page fact sheet may be useful to local, state, and public health officials; finance officers; managers; planners; and the general public. The cost is 70 cents plus shipping. To order, call the NSFC at (800) 624-8301 or (304) 293-4191 and request Item #FMFSFN33. Orders may also be placed via e-mail at .

Located at West Virginia University, the NSFC is a nonprofit organization funded by the EPA to provide free and low-cost information about small community wastewater treatment. For more information, visit NSFC's Web site at http://www.nsfc.wvu.edu.
