New Mexico Environment Department: Clean Water State Revolving Fund
The New Mexico Environment Department manages the Clean Water State Revolving Loan Fund Program (CWSRF). The CWSRF program provides a source of low-cost financing for a wide range of wastewater and storm water projects that protect surface and ground water. Funds may also be used for projects that control non-point source water pollution, such as a solid waste and septic tank installations. Public entities can also use funding for planning, design, and construction of wastewater collection and treatment facilities and for non-point source water pollution control projects.
Eligible projects include, but are not limited to:
- Centralized and Decentralized Wastewater Treatment: Energy and water conservation associated with wastewater facilities, agricultural best management practices, habitat protection and restoration. Projects that remediate or prevent pollution from landfills, silviculture, resource extraction, and brownfields.
- Stormwater Management Projects: 1) Stormwater grey infrastructure – Traditional pipe, storage, treatment and sediment controls including filter fences, storm drain inlet protection, street sweepers and vacuum trucks; and 2) Stormwater green infrastructure – infiltration basins; constructed surface and subsurface flows; rainwater harvesting, storage, management and distribution; bioretention/biowales; replacement of grey infrastructure with green infrastructure.
- Landfill projects: 1) Landfill closure – Capping systems, leachate collection, storage and treatment, side slope seepage prevention and control, gas condensation systems, monitoring wells and equipment, stormwater runoff controls; and 2) Landfill leachate collection and treatment – Landfill liner systems, Leachate removal or collection, toe drains and cut-off walls, on-site leachate treatment facilities, barge shelters, containment booms, and litter fences.
Amount: Not specified. Funds are available for up to 100% of eligible costs. Federal legislation determines the availability of the additional subsidization on an annual basis. If additional subsidy is made available then, a combination loan and grant funds may also be available.
Eligibility: Municipalities, Counties, Water and Sanitation Districts, Mutual Domestic Water Associations, Pueblos and Tribes are all encouraged to apply for this funding.
