DWSRF Intended Use Plan

The Intended Use Plan (IUP) identifies how the money will be distributed and describes how those uses support the overall goals of the Drinking Water State Revolving Fund (DWSRF) program.  Chief of these goals is public health protection. Included is a description about how the IUP meets the objectives (public health protection goals) of the Safe Drinking Water Act.

IUPs identify eligible projects and their priorities based on three primary criteria. These criteria determine which projects receive first priority for funding. Priority is given in a ranking order to those projects that:

  • address the most serious human health risks
  • ensure or maintain compliance with the Safe Drinking Water Act
  • assist systems with greatest economic needs

 Sustainable Infrastructure

 

The Kentucky Division of Water supports the goals of EPA's Sustainable Infrastructure Initiative (SII). This initiative seeks to promote sustainable practices that will help to reduce the potential gap between funding needs and spending at the local and national level. The SII will guide our efforts in changing how Kentucky views, values, manages and invests in its water infrastructure. This brochure contains information that will help you ensure your facility and operations are consistent with and can benefit from the aims of the Sustainable Infrastructure Initiative.

Check out this Sustainable Infrastructure Brochure about sustainable infrastructure tools and resources for Kentucky.
