Clean Water State Revolving Fund Success Stories

Sacramento Regional County Sanitation District
EchoWater Project
CWSRF Loan Amount: $1,576,978,261

The EchoWater Project is among the largest public works project in Sacramento’s history. When completed, it will keep Regional San in compliance with its regulatory permits and improve water quality by resulting in a nearly 95 percent reduction in ammonia discharged to the Sacramento-San Joaquin River Delta. It will also substantially increase water recycling opportunities (e.g., for agricultural irrigation, public landscapes, and industrial processes) by producing highly treated water that meets water reuse standards. The favorable loan terms will save ratepayers more than a half billion dollars in interest costs. Read more about this project at http://www.regionalsan.com/echowater-project.

Planada Community Services District
Wastewater Treatment Plant (WWTP) Improvement Project
CWSRF Loan & Small Community Grant Amount: $8,064,825

This project, which is jointly funded between the State Water Board and USDA Rural Development, changes the WWTP disposal method from nearby Miles Creek to agricultural irrigation. This project will allow the District to comply with discharge requirements, improve water quality, and offset water that can be used for potable uses during this challenging drought. For this small, disadvantaged community, breaking ground is a big step as many challenges had to be overcome during the long planning process. It took many parties coming together and perseverance on the part of the Planada CSD Board and the community to reach this important milestone.
