New BIL-Funded LSL & EC Programs

Read our E-Bulletins and amendments to the Safe Drinking Water Loan Program (SDWLP) Intended Use Plan for information about the new Bipartisan Infrastructure Law (BIL) Lead Service Line (LSL) and Emerging Contaminants (EC) programs. In December, the Wisconsin DNR held webinars discussing the new LSL and EC programs. The amendments, recordings and slides are available on the Project Lists and IUPs web page under the SFY 2023 SDWLP heading.

Bipartisan Infrastructure Law (BIL) Funding

In Wisconsin, the BIL will provide over $700 million in additional funding during the next five years through the DNR’s Clean Water Fund and Safe Drinking Water Loan Programs.

Each municipality that plans to apply for financial assistance from Environmental Loans must submit an Intent to Apply (ITA) with Priority Evaluation and Ranking Formula (PERF) information and a Financial Assistance Application through the online systems. Applicants may use the online application system's document upload feature to attach loan documents.

Attention: Read our final policy paper on Procedural Changes for CWFP and SDWLP Applications. More information is available on the Statutes & Codes web page.
