MI DEQ Seeking Additional Applicants for Water System Loans

State regulators are looking for more applicants for low-interest loans to upgrade public drinking water facilities.

The Michigan Department of Environmental Quality says community water systems have requested more than $50 million in loans so far through the drinking water revolving fund for 2019.

But there’s still an additional $60 million in funding available.

State officials say the remaining money will be used to address health threats like lead or PFAS contamination.

An intent-to-apply form is due by January 14 and the deadline for final project plans is March 15.

The DEQ is providing educational videos to help communities prepare those plans.
