Financing Water Quality Improvements at Brownfields Sites

Brownfields grantees may be able to leverage and align other EPA financial resources to address various water quality issues at Brownfields sites. Aligning resources allows EPA to better meet communities’ needs so they can more effectively reap the benefits of collaborative investments. For example:

  • Water systems serving redeveloped Brownfield sites may, under certain conditions, use EPA’s Drinking Water State Revolving Fund (DWSRF) for the assessment and construction of drinking water infrastructure.
