House Bill 1087 Water/Wastewater Public Enterprise Reform


This Act requires certain distressed water and wastewater systems to undergo review of infrastructure, organizational, and financial management, and provides funding for the Viable Utility Reserve to provide grant money for local government units. The Viable Utility Reserve is an account within the Water Infrastructure Fund and is fully funded by State appropriated funds. It also provides a statutory process for merger and dissolution of water and wastewater systems and provides funds for the Southern Regional Area Health Education Center and for water resources projects, including flood storage capacity enhancement projects. The bill included a $9 million appropriation.
