These funds will be used by the state of Texas to provide loans and other types of financial assistance to communities and state agencies for wastewater improvements. This will help improve water quality in streams, lakes, rivers and bays, benefiting aquatic life and sources of drinking water. It can also contribute to improved public health by reducing hazards such as raw sewage discharges.
For more than 25 years, the CWSRF has served as the nation’s largest source of water-quality financing, helping communities improve water quality, protect aquatic wildlife, protect and restore drinking water sources, and preserving our waters for recreational use. Since 1987, CWSRFs have provided $105.4 billion to communities through 34,900 low-cost loans.
