Oregon CWSRF IUP 2021
The Oregon Department of Environmental Quality prepares this Intended Use Plan as required by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and Oregon Administrative Rules to inform Oregonians and the Clean Water State Revolving Fund loan applicants about how DEQ proposes to use the fund during state fiscal year 2021. The following water quality improvement projects areas are: wastewater collection, treatment, water reuse and disposal systems; nonpoint source water pollution control projects; development and implementation of management plans for federally designated estuaries in Oregon (Tillamook Bay and Lower Columbia River). The program has a goal to assist communities in restoring, maintaining, and enhancing water quality by offering financial assistance for water pollution control, water quality improvement and protection projects. Funds aim to administer the Clean Water State Revolving Fund to ensure programmatic compliance with regulatory requirements, financial integrity, fund viability and perpetuity. Technical assistance includes assisting communities with the loan application and loan management process to meet regulatory requirements with federal and state requirements, water quality standards, utility, and financial management. Lastly, projects are to coordinate and collaborate with other state and federal programs to provide financial solutions for water quality improvements to Oregon public agencies.
