In President Obama”s Fiscal Year 2011  Budget released today, the Clean Water State Revolving Fund received $2 billion and the Drinking Water State Revolving Fund received $1.287 billion. The proposed budget levels for the SRF programs are $100 million less than each program is receiving for FY 2010, but near its historical highs.

Headlines
Sewer problems are plaguing a street in Gautier, Mississippi that has a lingering sewer smell that has affected residents for years after every heavy rain. The city is spending $12,000 to clean out a sewer line that affects the street and installing a liner in a sewer main at a cost of $100,000.

Gloucester, Massachusetts is set to borrow $20 million to pay for federally mandated sewer improvements — including a renovation of a wastewater treatment plant and continuation of a four-year-old combined sewer overflow project.

Stimulus Spotlight
Rocky Mountain National Park in Colorado is planning to use money from the economic stimulus to replace part of the water system for the historic Onahu Lodge in the Kawuneeche Valley.

Nearly $16 million in economic stimulus bonds will be used to improve water systems in Kanawha County, West Virginia. The first part of the two-pronged water project would establish a water main using $11 million of the bonds.
