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 This Act was later superseded by HRS Chapter 342D-Part V.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.

Intended Use Plan (IUP) for State Fiscal (SFY) 2023 and Federal Fiscal Year (FFY) 2022


The EPA grants monies to the State of Hawaii annually to construct wastewater pollution control facilities. During FFY 2022, approximately $12.3 million under the Base Clean Water State Revolving Fund (CWSRF) appropriation and $14.5 million under the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law (BIL) CWSRF appropriation will be allocated to the State of Hawaii. In order to utilize the state revolving funds, proposed projects must be prioritized and listed on the Project Priority List for SFY 2023. The IUP also includes the implementation schedule for the projects proposed to receive loans from the State Revolving Fund during SFY 2023.

The IUP was available from the website at: and for public inspection during regular office hours, Monday through Friday, 7:45 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. from May 6, 2022 to June 4, 2022 at the location listed below.
