More than $63 million from the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law has been awarded to Nevada to improve or replace the state’s water pipes, tanks, and treatment plans.
At the federal level, the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law includes a $55 billion investment in clean water initiatives, including over $23 billion for clean drinking water and wastewater infrastructure and $15 billion to address lead in drinking water.
Earlier this year, U.S. Senators Jacky Rosen (D-NV) and Catherine Cortez Mastro (D-NV) who helped secure in the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law also helped obtain $19 million from the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law to help prevent the state’s drinking water from perfluoroalkyl and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS).
In February, U.S. Senator Catherine Cortez Masto announced that the state of Nevada will receive $11,390,000 this year from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Clean Water State Revolving Fund (SRF) to help communities upgrade essential water, wastewater, and stormwater infrastructure.
