The Viable Utility Reserve Committee of the State Water Infrastructure Authority will meet online 9:30 a.m. Friday to discuss distressed units, or utilities with customer bases less than 10,000 that not self sufficient, or costs more to operate than is bringing in.
The viable utility program offers funding to local governments with distressed water and wastewater units to become viable utility systems using long-term solutions.
The authority is an independent body with primary responsibility for awarding federal and state funding for water and wastewater infrastructure projects. Other responsibilities include developing a state water infrastructure master plan, recommending ways to maximize the use of available loan and grant funding resources, and examining best and emerging practices.Add to favorites
