(Denver, Colo. -- May 14, 2007) The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency today presented a Drinking Water State Revolving Fund (DWSRF) award to the City of Riverton, Wyo., for the rehabilitation of its water treatment plant which will keep its system in compliance with new surface water treatment requirements.
“Riverton's proactive efforts will help avoid larger costs when the new treatment requirements go into effect," said EPA Region 8 Administrator Robert E. Roberts. “This EPA award recognizes exceptional creativity in designing projects that promote sustainability and protect public health.
The Safe Drinking Water Act, as amended in 1996, established the Drinking Water State Revolving Fund program to make funds available to drinking water systems to finance infrastructure improvements. The program also emphasizes providing funds to small and disadvantaged communities and to programs that encourage pollution prevention as a tool for ensuring safe drinking water.
