FRANKFORT, Ky. (July 5, 2012) — Kentucky’s draft 2013 Clean Water Intended Use Plan including the Project Priority List is available for public review and comment from through Aug. 3.
KIA will have approximately $93,417,169 available for low-interest loans for projects to prevent and control water pollution in Kentucky.
The funds are part of the Clean Water State Revolving Fund (CWSRF), a low-interest loan program created by the Clean Water Act Amendments of 1987 to provide a perpetual low-cost source of funding for a wide range of efforts to protect or improve water quality. Construction loans carry a 20-year repayment period while loans for planning and design carry shorter repayment periods. To be considered eligible to receive a CWSRF loan, a project must be identified on the project priority list, which is attached to the Intended Use Plan (IUP). Comments from the public are required in finalizing the plan.
KIA and the DOW will conduct a public meeting to present the draft 2013 plan to the public and solicit their comments. The meeting will be Thursday, July 12 at 1:30 p.m. in the KIA Board Room located at 1024 Capital Center Drive, Suite 340, Frankfort, Ky.
The IUP identifies the goals of the CWSRF and describes how the money will be used to achieve those goals. The IUP was prepared jointly by KIA and the DOW.
Comments should be provided in writing to Sandy Williams, Kentucky Infrastructure Authority, by Aug. 3 at Kentucky Infrastructure Authority, 1024 Capital Center Drive, Suite 340, Frankfort, KY 40601.
