WATER INFRASTRUCTURE FUNDING: WHAT THE FEDERAL INFRASTRUCTURE ACT MEANS FOR SMALL SYSTEMS IN MARYLAND
Thursday, May 12,10-11:00AM
REGISTRATION NOW OPEN!
Description: The federal Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act has dominated headlines this spring, with its promise to bring unprecedented levels of funding to upgrade the nation’s infrastructure – including water and wastewater systems. In Maryland, water system operators may be wondering what opportunities are in store, and how to access funds to implement infrastructure projects in their communities.
In this webinar for small water systems in Maryland, participants will gain insight to the Infrastructure Act’s importance for small systems, and they will learn about the Maryland State Revolving Loan Fund (SRF) program and how it can help small systems achieve their goals. The discussion will focus on the SRF’s role in helping Maryland communities develop and implement capital improvement plans, promote infrastructure affordability, prompt community revitalization, and coordinate with neighbors on water infrastructure planning and financing. The session will also feature a case story from the small town of Westernport, MD, which has successfully upgraded its water and wastewater infrastructure with assistance from MWQFA and other funding partners.
Guest presenters include Alison Souders, US EPA; Michael Roberts, Maryland Water Quality Financing Administration; and Mayor Laura Freeman-Legge, Westernport, MD. Bring your questions about the federal Infrastructure Act’s implications for Maryland small systems and how Maryland’s SRF program can help your community meet its water funding needs!
Certificate: Certificates of participation can be provided upon request if an attendee wishes to retain a record of their own attendance.
