Savannah Business Journal Staff Report

November 1, 2017 - The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recently recognized 28 clean water infrastructure projects for excellence and innovation within the Clean Water State Revolving Fund (CWSRF) program.  Honored projects include large wastewater infrastructure projects to small decentralized and agriculture projects.

EPA’s Performance and Innovation in the SRF Creating Environmental Success (PISCES) program celebrates innovation demonstrated by CWSRF programs and assistance recipients. The CWSRF is a federal-state partnership that provides communities a permanent, independent source of low-cost financing for a wide range of water quality infrastructure projects. Over the past 30 years, CWSRF programs have provided more than $125 billion in financing for water quality infrastructure.

“For decades the Clean Water State Revolving Fund has supported critical water infrastructure projects that help grow the American economy and support our way of life,” said Mike Shapiro, Acting Assistant Administrator for EPA’s Office of Water. “These projects are a testament to the power of the Clean Water State Revolving Fund in leveraging investment to meet the country’s diverse clean water needs.”

Twenty-eight projects by state or local governments, public utilities, and private entities were recognized by the 2017 PISCES program. In Region 4 the following projects were recognized:

Recognized Excellence

  • Alabama: Biosolids Improvements for Energy Recovery - City of Albertville
  • Florida: Digester Project - City of Graceville
  • Georgia: Stormwater Retention - City of Hinesville
  • South Carolina: 4th Avenue Ocean Outfall - City of Myrtle Beach
