San Francisco PUC Awarded $625 Million Water Infrastructure Loan

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has awarded a $625-million WIFIA (Water Infrastructure and Financing Innovation Act) loan to the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission (SFPUC). The loan, one of 12 issued nationwide, is expected to save ratepayers over $200 million.

The $625-million WIFIA loan will fund roughly half of SFPUC’s $1.27 billion biosolids facilities upgrades, a project led by environmental engineering firm Brown and Caldwell that will upgrade critical components of the city’s aging sewer system infrastructure and support the city’s sustainability goals by maximizing energy recovery, reducing emissions, minimizing potable water use through recycling and producing Class A biosolids for beneficial reuse.
