The 2004 Annual Report on the Clean Water State Revolving Fund (CWSRF) highlights program activities and successes throughout the past 15 years of the largest federal funding program for water infrastructure projects. The literature provides an overview of the fund; describes its financial status, economic and environmental performance, and discusses new directions for the future.
Since the CWSRF was created by Congress in 1987, it has provided low-interest loans targeting a wide range of projects in wastewater treatment, non-point source pollution control, estuary management, and other projects focusing on water quality. The CWSRF averages $4.4 billion in loans annually, and it currently has more than $50 billion in funds available for assistance.
