This year, the EPA is providing the New England states with more than $120 million for projects that address stormwater and aging wastewater infrastructure and implement water reuse and recycling. Another $80 million is allotted to projects that install treatments for contaminants, remove lead distribution lines, and improve system resiliency.

All funding is provided through the Clean Water and Drinking Water State Revolving Fund programs, which calls for states to contribute an additional 20 percent to match federal grants.
