Drinking Water Treatment Revolving Fund Program Has Been Transferred to the DEP
The West Virginia Legislature, at the 2023 Regular Session, passed House Bill 561, which transferred administration of the DWTRF from BPH to the DEP effective
July 1, 2023. The DEP will be working in collaboration with the Office of Environmental and Health Services (OEHS) to provide funding to necessary projects
and to provide financial support to the OEHS to carry out set-aside activities funded under Sections 1452 (g)(2)(A), (B), (C), and (D) and
Sections 1452 (k)(1)(B), (C), and (D) of the Federal Safe Drinking Water Act. As a result, the DEP will be responsible for managing the DWTRF and Capacity
Development Programs and providing the necessary funding from the set-asides to fund all eligible expenditures in support of the OEHS Environmental Engineering
This webpage will be updated in the coming months to reflect the recent changes, but in the interim the following resources continue to provide necessary information
