Washington State Focuses on DWSRF Opportunities

The Washington State Department of Health publishes an online newsletter for its water systems.  This month, the focus is on the Drinking Water State Revolving Fund (DWSRF)…how it works…how to apply…how much money is available from which source…how to ask for help…and how to get CEUs for learning more!  ASDWA believes that this approach is exceptionally helpful for smaller communities who may find the whole process intimidating.  Think about whether your state or organization could share similar types of information with your small systems to help them take that first step toward sustainability!
