$10 Billion Now Available For PFAS Contamination
At a Glance
The Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act appropriates $10 billion to address Per- and Polyfluoroalkyl Substances (PFAS) contamination of drinking water and wastewater. Monies will be allocated to state revolving funds and grants, including:
- $5 billion for drinking water through small and disadvantaged community grant programs;
- $4 billion for water utilities to remove PFAS through State Revolving Loan Funds (100% grants); and
- $1 billion for wastewater utilities to treat PFAS in wastewater discharges (100% grants).
GZA can be your stakeholder advocate, providing experienced and qualified personnel to help characterize PFAS contamination, and address the regulations, toxicology, public relations, and technical challenges surrounding PFAS. We can help manage your risk and provide cost-effective treatment solutions. And we can assist in securing funding, including navigating the grant application and management process.
Using a cautious and iterative approach, GZA has assisted water supply and wastewater utilities, attorneys, and municipalities with navigating through these complex PFAS issues. Look for future updates from GZA for information regarding the availability of these funds from the State and how to access them.
