ABSTRACT
The article reports on the Clean Water State Revolving Fund (SRF) program in the U.S. The program is said to have been implemented in response to the mandate under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 which requires that state must meet the SRF program's requirements, must address the use of Recovery Act funds, and oversee the funds' utilization. It recommends the need for the Environmental Protection Agency to work with states to monitor compliance to the program.
