Iowa DNR offers use of SRF funds to help with flood repair
July 16, 2008
Iowa has a significant State Revolving Fund
program which provides loans to communities for the development of their municipal water
systems. Due to the considerable damage caused to those systems by last month's flooding -- some of which continues into this month -- the DNR has advised communities on ways to use SRF dollars
to help with flood recovery. Wastewater plants in particular are normally located at the lowest elevation in a community near a river or stream, so they are particularly susceptible to flooding.
