State Revolving Fund Loans Awarded for Drinking Water
North Dakota Ag Connection - 01/12/2021

The North Dakota Department of Environmental Quality awarded loans for water projects to three communities through the Drinking Water State Revolving Fund (DWSRF) Programs.

- Cavalier received a $1,750,000 DWSRF loan to replace the aging ground storage reservoir and pump station. This project will ensure continued reliable water service to the system.

- Jamestown received a $1,344,000 DWSRF loan to replace a low-pressure cast iron water line with a new PVC line from the existing water plant to the ND State Hospital. This will allow for the looping of the entire southeast portion of the City of Jamestown.

- Mandan received a $7,455,000 DWSRF loan towards construction of a new raw water intake along a more stable segment of the Missouri River to provide a more reliable source of water and minimize the amount of sediment that must be removed during the treatment process.

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency provides part of the DWSRF Programs funding, which offers below-market interest rate loans to political subdivisions for financing projects authorized under the Safe Drinking Water Act. DWSRF programs operate nationwide to provide funding to maintain and improve the infrastructure that protects our vital water resources.

The NDDEQ adds loan applicants to the program's priority list, and awards are distributed based on project eligibility and ability to repay. Please contact the NDDEQ regarding specific detail on any of the projects mentioned above.
