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:
- Publicly owned centralized wastewater treatment works construction, repair, or replacement
- Implementation of a non-point source management plan
- Decentralized systems treating municipal or domestic sewage
- Measures reducing, treating, or managing stormwater
- Measures reducing demand to publicly owned treatment works through conservation
- Watershed projects
- Reducing energy consumption at publicly owned treatment works
- Projects for reusing or recycling wastewater or stormwater
- Increasing security at publicly owned treatment works
Amount: Not specified. Funds are available for up to 100% of eligible costs. Annual federal funding determines the availability of subsidy. Subsidy may be offered to eligible entities in a combination loan and grant package.
Eligibility: Municipalities, Counties, Water and Sanitation Districts, Mutual Domestic Water Associations, Pueblos and Tribes are all encouraged to apply for this funding.
