Clean Water State Revolving Fund Program Environmental Review Requirements

The CWSRF Program is partially funded by the United States Environmental Protection Agency. Therefore, the State Water Board must document that all projects funded by the CWSRF Program meet specific federal cross-cutting requirements.

As part of the CWSRF application process, applicants are required to submit to their Project Manager at the State Water Board the applicable documents and an Environmental Package along with the supporting documents (except the cultural resources report) through FAAST. The CWSRF Environmental Review Staff will work with applicants to assure each project has adequately complied with applicable federal and state environmental laws and regulations prior to the State Water Board financing approval. 

The State Water Board has the authority to initiate consultation with the relevant federal agencies having jurisdiction over the federal environmental laws and regulations. Any issues raised by the relevant federal agencies must be resolved prior to completing the State Water Board environmental review process and financing approval.
