The Water Pollution Control Loan Fund (WPCLF) Program Management Plan (PMP) includes guidelines for administration of program funds and project implementation over the program year.
As part of DEFA’s ongoing efforts to make the most of the limited principal forgiveness funding available every year through our SRF programs, additional focus will be placed on projects that are ready to proceed.

On Oct. 23, 2018, the President signed the America’s Water Infrastructure Act (AWIA) of 2018, containing provisions strengthening both the Clean Water State Revolving Fund (CWSRF) and the Drinking Water State Revolving Fund (DWSRF).
In Ohio, the State Revolving Funds programs have been providing incentives, either through zero percent interest rate loans, or through principal forgiveness funds, for projects that involve regionalization of drinking water or wastewater facilities.
So far this year, Ohio EPA has processed more than 200 loan agreements. With continued, growing demand for SRF program funding, Ohio EPA is focusing more attention on those projects most likely to successfully make it to loan award during the year, or those projects that are ready to proceed.
The American Iron and Steel (AIS) provision requires all Clean Water State Revolving Fund (CWSRF) and Drinking Water State Revolving Fund (DWSRF) assistance recipients to use iron and steel products produced in the United States. This requirement applies to projects for constructing, altering, maintaining or repairing public water systems or treatment works. In Ohio, Water Pollution Control Loan Fund and Water Supply Revolving Loan Account loan recipients are subject to AIS requirements.
On July 18, 2018, DEFA hosted a webinar to discuss the Water Pollution Control Loan Fund (WPCLF), including highlights of the past 12 months, plans for the 2019 program, the nomination process and project scoring. A recording of the webinar is on the Agency YouTube channel.
Since the creation of the Water Pollution Control Loan Fund (WPCLF) in 1989 and the Water Supply Revolving Loan Account (WSRLA) in 1998 Ohio has received a grant from the federal government to be used as seed money for these state revolving funds (SRF).
