DWRLF Loan Program
As a result of State Legislation, as well as legislation by the U.S. Congress, the Drinking Water Revolving Loan Fund (DWRLF) was created to assist public water systems in financing needed drinking water infrastructure improvements (e.g., treatment plant, distribution main replacement, storage facilities). The DWRLF is administered by the Louisiana Department of Health (LDHH) Office of Public Health (OPH). Similar to the successful Clean Water State Revolving Fund (CWSRF) administered by the Louisiana Department of Environmental Quality (LDEQ), this program provides low-interest loans for construction of eligible water system projects. As loans are repaid, money is available to be used again for new loans - a true revolving fund.
