Environmental Section

Environmental Review Requirements

The State Water Board is required to comply with the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) when funding a project.  The Environmental Section in the Division of Financial Assistance ensures the State Water Board’s compliance with CEQA and federal environmental laws and authorities for projects funded by the Clean Water State Revolving Fund (CWSRF) and the Drinking Water State Revolving Fund (DWSRF) Programs.

The Environmental Section includes the CWSRF Environmental Review Unit, the DWSRF Environmental Review Unit, and the Special Project (drinking water supply) Review Unit.
