Traditionally, the Clean Water State Revolving Fund (CWSRF) has been used in New Mexico for publicly-owned wastewater treatment plants and stormwater projects.  Now, through a change in statute, there are expanded project types and eligibilities.  The New Mexico Environment Department’s Construction Programs Bureau will accept applications for the FY19 CWSRF Priority list between March 12th and May 16th 2018.
