Clean Water State Revolving Fund

The Clean Water State Revolving Fund program is a funding program to address water quality problems through wastewater facility construction, upgrades, or expansions. The program is charged with general oversight, fiscal management and adminstrative compliance review of local governmental entities that receive funds. This section provides information and guidance on what administrative actions are needed to process a lona through the program. When a community has been recommended by the West Virginia Infrastructure and Jobs Development Council to seek the Clean Water State Revolving Fund program fro financial assistance, that community will be contacted by one of the financial managers. A meeting may be scheduled to advise the comminity leaders about the overall program requirements and specifically what should be completed next to obtain a Clean Water State Revolving Fund loan. There are federal, state and program requirements that must be met prior to scheduling a loan closing.
The Clean Water State Revolving Fund currently has three financial assistance programs available.
    1. Low Interest Loan Program (for construction of municipal wastewater treatment works)
    2. Agriculture Water Quality Loan Program
    3. On-site Systems Loan Program


Low Interest Loan Program
A low interest loan program for construction of municipal wastewater treatment works is available for municipalities and public service districts to build, upgrade, or expand treatment facilities and collection systems. Conventional loans with a repayment period of 20 years are available with an interest rate and annual administrative fee not exceeding 3% for certain communities. Loans with repayment periods from 21 to 40 years are available for disadvantaged communities where financial affordablility is an issue. The interest rate and annual administration fee on these loans do not exceed 1/2%.

Agriculture Water Quality Loan Program
The agriculture Water Quality Loan Program is a partnership with the West Virginia Conservation Agency developed to address pollution from nonpoint sources using Best Management Practices approved by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.  The Clean Water State Revolving Fund money is loaned to participating banks so they can offer below market rate low interest loans to qualified applicants.

On-site Systems Loan Program
In cooperation with the West Virginia Housing Development Fund, a new low interest loan program has been established to address on-site sewage disposal problems. Called the "On-site Systems Loan Program," loans up to $10,000 are available to replace malfunctioning septic systems and to install new on-site sewage systems for homes that have direct sewage discharges to ditches and streams. To obtain additional information on this new program, you can contact John Tingley (DEP) at (304) 926-0499 extension 1603 or Patti Shamblin (Housing Development Fund) at 1-(304) 391-8729.
