On October 4, 2019, President Trump signed the Water Infrastructure Funding Transfer Act (WIFTA). Under WIFTA, Congress will allow the transfer of funds from the Clean Water State Revolving Fund (CWSRF) to the Drinking Water State Revolving Fund (DWSRF) to address lead contamination in drinking water. Excessive amounts of lead have been found in water systems throughout the United States, including most recently in the City of Newark, New Jersey. Sens. Cory Booker (D-NJ) and Robert Menendez (D-NJ), co-sponsored the legislation that permits a one-time transfer of funds between these two programs. The transfer is capped at five percent of cumulative CWSRF and can occur for a one-year period beginning with the legislation’s enactment; therefore, all transfers must be complete by October 4, 2020. States must consult with EPA prior to the fund transfer to demonstrate the need for the transfer. Transferred funds may be used to provide financial support in the form of forgiveness of principal, negative interest loans, or grants (or any combination). This authority is in addition to the transfer authority that exists under the Safe Drinking Water Act. EPA Administrator Andrew Wheeler is quoted as saying, “President Trump has made reducing lead exposure a top priority across his administration, and his signature of this new law is yet another example of the ways we are providing communities with additional tools to protect their drinking water.”
