Iowa's drinking water state revolving fund (SRF) program makes loans to drinking water systems for design and construction to ensure public health protection the the provision of safe drinking water. IDNR has established priorities for the SRF, and will publish them each year in its Intended Use Plan (IUP) (off-site). The IUP includes the proposed uses of the moneys and describes how each project will be managed.
IDNR has prepared scoring criteria to address health risks, rule compliance, and infrastructure needs, including criteria for loan eligibility. The criteria uses a point system based on health-based standards violations (MCL, MRDL, TT, and ALE), system vulnerability, infrastructure improvement needs, population, and design deficiencies.
The Water Supply Construction Manual outlines the process of receiving a water supply construction permit, with instructions for participating in the Drinking Water State Revolving Loan Fund.
