Clean Water State Revolving Fund PISCES Program: George F. Ames Performance and Innovation in the SRF Creating Environmental Success Program

The Clean Water State Revolving Fund’s George F. Ames Performance and Innovation in the SRF Creating Environmental Success (PISCES) program recognizes CWSRF assistance recipients for exceptional projects and highlights them nationally. Participating state programs each nominate one project that exemplifies one or more of the following evaluation criteria:

  • Innovative Financing
  • System Partnerships
  • Community Engagement
  • Environmental and Public Health Protection
  • Problem Solving

Eligible projects must have an executed CWSRF assistance agreement and can be operational or in the planning phase. EPA selects an Exceptional Project from the nominations every year for each of the five evaluation criteria categories. The remaining nominated PISCES projects receive Honorable Mention recognition.

Coming soon: The 2020 CWSRF PISCES Compendium – provides descriptions of all projects recognized in 2020.
