Clean Water State Revolving Fund Program

The federal Water Quality Act of 1987 (the Act) created the State Revolving Fund Loan Program (commonly known as the SRF). The Act authorized low interest loans for the construction of publicly owned wastewater treatment works (POTWs), for implementation of a nonpoint source (NPS) pollution control management program, and for implementation of an estuary conservation and management program. In 1988, the Hawaii State Legislature passed Act 365 establishing a State Water Pollution Control Revolving Fund to receive the federal capitalization grant. This Act was later superseded by HRS Chapter 342D-Part V.

The Clean Water SRF (CWSRF) Program assists in financing the construction of water pollution control projects necessary to prevent contamination of our groundwater and coastal water resources and to protect and promote the health, safety and welfare of the citizens of the State of Hawaii. The CWSRF Program provides low interest loans to county and state agencies to construct point source and nonpoint source water pollution control projects.

Proposed Intended Use Plan (IUP) for SFY 2016

Each year, the EPA provides a grant to the State of Hawaii to construct wastewater pollution control facilities.  For FFY 2015, approximately $10.9 million will be allocated to Hawaii. In order to obtain and use these funds, an IUP must be submitted to EPA. Projects proposed for funding must be prioritized and listed on the Project Priority List for SFY 2016 (included in the IUP) along with estimated project start date and cost. The proposed IUP is available for public review and comment from February 18, 2015 to March 19, 2015.  Copies of the Public Notice and proposed IUP for SFY 16 are provided below:
