Budget deal cuts clean water funding, hurts communities and economy

0

After intense negotiations, Congress will pass a final budget for fiscal year 2011 including $1.6 billion in funding cuts to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the majority of which (approximately 66%) are taken from the Clean and Safe Drinking Water Revolving Funds (SRFs). These funds are the primary mechanisms used by the federal government to help states and municipalities improve the quality of their waterways. The National Association of Clean Water Agencies (NACWA) believes that these cuts are misguided and ignore the very real needs and financial constraints facing states and municipalities in meeting a growing array of costly Clean Water Act (CWA) requirements.
