The deadline to submit pre-applications to the state for the California Safe Drinking Water Revolving Fund is this Friday, Feb. 27.
The fund is operated by the California Department of Public Health, which is expected to receive about $160 million in the spring from the federal economic stimulus package.
Projects eligible for funding should be able to begin construction by the end of this year. Funding under the program is aimed at projects that address water quality problems or prevent pollution. They include water treatment facilities, replacement of aging infrastructure, planning studies, consolidation of water systems, and source water protection.
