General Statute 159G-70 (State Water Infrastructure Authority)
The Authority was created as an independent body made of nine members within the Department of Environment and Natural Resources. The main responsibility of the Authority is to award funding for water and wastewater infrastructure projects. The authority is also responsible for developing a state water infrastructure master plan, recommending ways to maximize the use of available loan and grant funding resources, examining best and emerging practices, and assessing the need for a troubled system protocol. The authority must meet at least four times per year. The Division of Water Infrastructure staff provides all support for the authority.
