84 Wisconsin communities to receive $414M in state funding for wastewater and stormwater projects

Jan 2, 2024


Eighty-four municipalities in Wisconsin are slated to receive allotments from state funding to improve their wastewater and stormwater systems. Gov. Tony Evers and the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources announced last month that $414.4 million has been allocated for financial assistance through the state’s Clean Water Fund Program.

“Helping communities replace and modernize aging systems to ensure they meet federal and state regulations is a critical part of our work to ensure every Wisconsinite has healthy, safe, and clean drinking water from their tap,” said Evers in a statement. “These dollars will help communities ensure they have the infrastructure their residents can trust to address wastewater and stormwater and be even better prepared to handle any future challenges that may arise.” 

The $414.4 million is a record amount for the program. The Department of Natural Resources is allocating $358.3 million in subsidized, reduced-interest-rate loan funding and $56.1 million in principal forgiveness. The program is funded in part by the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law.
