FRANKFORT, Ky. (3/13/13) – The Kentucky Infrastructure Authority (KIA) today announced that Kentucky’s draft 2014 Clean Water Intended Use Plan is available for public review and comment now through April 11, 2013.
KIA will have approximately $10.5 million 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 Division of Water of the Energy and Environment Cabinet will hold a public meeting to present the draft 2014 CWSRF-IUP to the public and seek their comments. The meeting will be held on Tuesday, April 9, 2013, at 1:30 p.m. in the KIA Board Room located at 1024 Capital Center Drive, Suite 340, Frankfort, Kentucky.
The draft 2014 CWSRF-IUP and the project priority list are available online at www.water.ky.gov or www.kia.ky.gov. Copies of the plan and the priority list are also available at the following locations:
