EPA hosted an informational webinar on September 22, 2020 to provide an overview of its proposed 2020 Financial Capability Assessment (FCA) for Clean Water Act (CWA) schedule development. The 2020 FCA proposal explores how customers’ ability to pay for service impacts the affordability of capital expenditures and operation and maintenance needed to ensure CWA compliance. When finalized, the 2020 FCA will support negotiations of schedules for implementing CWA requirements for municipalities and local authorities.
EPA will accept comments for 30 days via the Federal eRulemaking portal (https://www.regulations.gov), referencing Docket ID No. EPA–HQ– OW–2020–0426.
Comments must be received on or before October 19, 2020.
