California CWSRF IUP
California’s CWSRF has grown since financing its first project in 1989 and has executed more than $11.2 billion in financial assistance agreements with over 350 unique recipients. Approximately 96 percent (96%) of funds have been used for publicly owned wastewater infrastructure, and about four percent (4%) of funds have been used for nonpoint source or estuary projects. California has several goals, including to improve and protect groundwater quality in high-use basins by 2030, and increase sustainable local water supplies available for meeting existing and future beneficial uses. The CWSRF program supports the three goals of the California Water Action Plan: more reliable water supplies; the restoration of important species and habitat; and a more resilient, sustainably managed water resources system (water supply, water quality, flood protection, and environment) that can better withstand inevitable and unforeseen pressures in the coming decades. In the report, an “additional supplemental appropriations for disaster relief act 2019” may also be found, offering direction to address wildfires and hurricanes, and the State Water Board’s plan for supplemental intended use cases. The state has long and short term goals, to invest in small SDAC’s and small DAC’s disproportionately affected by pollution and water contamination, and provide funds for high-priority projects, respectively.
