New England is the newest recipient of federal funding from the Environmental Protection Agency, as the body announces that over $57 million will be distributed among the states across the said region. The funding came from the Clean Water State Revolving Fund and will be used to finance wastewater and stormwater improvements.
New Hampshire Public Radio has further reported:
The EPA said Connecticut will receive $9 million to protect drinking water, limit the PFAS “forever chemicals” in water and build resilience against climate change.
“The investments we are making now will result in long-lasting benefits for communities across New England, from southern Connecticut all the way up to rural northern communities in Maine, Vermont and New Hampshire,” Cash said.
Massachusetts is slated to receive $25 million. New Hampshire will get $7 million, Maine and Rhode Island will each receive more than $5 million, and Vermont will get over $3 million for upgrades.
