The fiscal year 2016 annual report for the Iowa SRF is now available online at the links below. From the Executive Summary:

Nationally, $600 billion is needed for water infrastructure improvements over the next 20 years. In Iowa, surveys show more than $10 billion worth of needs.According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency: “These challenges impact drinking water, wastewater, and stormwater infrastructure that sustain local economies. The emerging challenges of stronger and more frequent storms, droughts, and floods heighten the urgency to reinvest in water sector infrastructure. Investments in water infrastructure have immense returns for communities.” The State Revolving Fund (SRF) is one of Iowa’s primary sources for investments in safe and clean water. The SRF passed the $2.7 billion mark in cumulative assistance provided during SFY 2016.Because the funds are continually being loaned out and repaid with interest, the SRF continues to grow. This source of financing will continue to meet future needs for a wide variety of water issues.
