Arkansas Secures Over $53 Million Boost from Biden Administration for Water System Revamp!

2 min read

Exciting news for Arkansas! The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) just shared that our state will be receiving a whopping $53,099,000 from President Biden’s plan to invest in America. This money is specifically set aside for making important upgrades to our drinking water and clean water systems.

Why is this happening? President Biden, through the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, is putting over $50 billion into upgrading water systems all across the nation. And here’s the great part – almost half of this money will be given as grants or loans that we don’t have to pay back completely. It’s like a financial boost for crucial projects!

EPA Administrator Michael S. Regan said this funding is a game-changer for our communities, making our drinking water safer and rebuilding essential clean water infrastructure. The $53 million is part of a larger $5.8 billion plan for the Clean Water and Drinking Water State Revolving Funds.

This plan includes money for low-interest loans that will help us solve challenges in our water systems. For example, $2.6 billion will go to cleaning up wastewater and stormwater (you know, when it rains a lot), and $3.2 billion is set for improving drinking water systems across the country.

President Biden’s team wants to make sure our water systems are strong, our health is protected, and our essential infrastructure lasts a long time. This big investment is like a historic step to make sure all of that happens!
