Drinking Water State Revolving Fund (DWSRF) and Proposition 1 Public Workshops (Fresno)

The State Water Board, Division of Financial Assistance, invites you to the Drinking Water State Revolving Fund (DWSRF) and Proposition 1 Public Workshop to be held at three California locations, beginning in Rancho Cordova, in June 2015. Proposition 1 (Section 79724) allocates $260 million in funding for public water system infrastructure improvements and related actions to meet safe drinking water standards, ensure affordable drinking water, or both.

The DWSRF Intended Use Plan (IUP) explains how the State Water Board intends to implement the DWSRF Program. The Draft State Fiscal Year (SFY) 2015-16 DWSRF (IUP) incorporates information regarding implementation of Section 79724 of Proposition 1. The three public workshops will provide State Water Board staff with an opportunity to answer questions and receive comments on the Draft SFY 2015-16 DWSRF IUP and the proposed Proposition 1 guidelines, which are posted online at: http://www.waterboards.ca.gov/drinking_water/services/funding/SRF.shtml

 

Due to limited space available, registration is recommended, but not required.  Individuals requiring special accommodations are requested to contact the State Water Board Contact identified at the end of this notice at least five (5) working days prior to the workshop(s).
