The Associated Press

CONCORD — New Hampshire will be getting nearly $23 million from the Environmental Protection Agency to upgrade sewage plants and drinking water systems.

The Clean Water State Revolving Fund program, administered by the state Department of Environmental Services, received $13.9 million. It provides low-interest loans for water quality protection projects to make improvements to wastewater treatment systems, control pollution from stormwater runoff, and protect sensitive water bodies and estuaries.

The Drinking Water State Revolving Fund program received $8.8 million. EPA's funding provides low-interest loans to finance improvements to drinking water systems, with a focus on providing funds to small and disadvantaged communities and to programs that encourage pollution prevention.

Since the beginning of this program, EPA has awarded close to $600 million to New Hampshire.
