Water: Drinking Water State Revolving Fund

Additional information on Cross-Cutting Federal Authorities

A number of Federal laws and Executive Orders apply in Federal financial assistance programs - including projects and activities funded through the Drinking Water and Clean Water State Revolving Fund programs. This page links to copies of statutes, regulations and other information useful in helping states and public water systems comply with cross-cutting federal authorities.  Many of the links go to sites maintained by other agencies, including the USDA Rural Utility Service, Army Corps of Engineers and agencies within the Department of Interior.  We hope you find them to be useful.
