Advancing Clean Water and Wastewater Infrastructure

The Bipartisan Infrastructure Law (BIL) delivers more than $50 billion to improve our nation’s drinking water, wastewater, and stormwater infrastructure — the single largest investment in water that the federal government has ever made. This historic investment will increase access to safe drinking water, restore clean water in communities and wild spaces, mitigate stormwater in a safe and controlled manner, and more.

This session provides an overview of major EPA Water and Wastewater BIL funding streams and the regulatory agenda that will impact project priorities and funding. The session will also examines funding for lead pipes, the water-energy nexus, and emerging contaminants. Finally, we discussed how cities should be working with their states to access funding for clean water and wastewater infrastructure projects. This webinar was recorded live on February 14, 2023.
