The GLEIC is working to create an electronic reference library of key publications to support LSTG agencies and private sector partners in the efficient management, maintenance, operation, and finance of municipally owned or controlled environmental systems. Publications might include providing technical guidance on the use of specific maintenance treatments for water and sewer collection and distribution systems; providing technical guidance on conducting a water distribution system leak study using locally available resources; developing a guide for establishing a sustainable capital improvement program using asset management principles; and providing summarized technical data such as methods for rate studies.
About the GLEIC Brochure
The GLEIC has a brochure available for you to download and distribute. The brochure provides an overview of our center and its mission.
EPA Water Finance Clearinghouse
The EPA has produced a new tool for communities to find funding for drinking-water, wastewater, and stormwater infrastructure projects. It includes grant and loan opportunities searchable by state. Communities can also access reports and guides, case studies, webinars, and more!
The GLEIC’s first publication, The Great Lakes Environmental Infrastructure Funding Guide, is due to appear this fall. While the GLEIC is not a funding agency, we are still interested in helping you acquire the finances you need to accomplish the environmental infrastructure projects you have. The guide will outline the use of state, regional, and federal funding sources for rural and tribal communities.
