The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has awarded more than $187.3 million to California for drinking water and wastewater infrastructure improvements and the Indio Water Authority has been named to receive some of the grant funding for drinking water infrastructure improvements to public water systems. IWA will consolidate two small local water systems serving disadvantaged communities into IWA to provide a reliable supply of water that meets drinking water standards.
“These funds will be used for 183 local projects that will boost the economy while improving water systems,” said EPA Pacific Southwest Regional Administrator Mike Stoker. “EPA is committed to investing in local infrastructure that will benefit the communities we serve.”
