Cheers to the New Year! The last year was a busy time for the Bull Run Filtration Projects team and a lot of great work is underway following City Council decisions last year. While 2019 dove deep into early project planning and outreach, 2020 will begin the design of the new filtration facility and pipe routes. Here are a few of the top things to know about the project as we ring in a new year:
1. We’ll continue to work with our federal partners on financing options for the project by applying for a WIFIA loan.
We were notified late in 2019 that because of the work we’ve accomplished so far, we were chosen to submit an application for a low interest loan from the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) through the Water Infrastructure Financing and Innovation Act (WIFIA). If chosen, this loan will help minimize future rate impacts.
