Wash. Admin. Code § 173-98-010 - Purpose

Current through Register Vol. 21-18, September 15, 2021

The purpose of this chapter is to set forth requirements for the Washington state department of ecology's (department) administration of Washington state's water pollution control revolving fund (revolving fund), and the water pollution control revolving administration account (administration account) as authorized by chapter 90.50A RCW, water pollution control facilities federal capitalization grants.

The revolving fund is primarily comprised of federal capitalization grants, state matching funds, and principal and interest repayments. It is used to provide loan assistance to public bodies for statewide, high-priority water quality projects that are consistent with the Clean Water Act, 33 U.S.C. 1251-1388.

The administration account is comprised of an administration charge applied to the outstanding loan balance on revolving fund loans. The administration account may be used for the following:

(1) Administration costs associated with conducting application processes, managing contracts, collecting loan repayments, managing the revolving fund, providing technical assistance, and meeting state and federal reporting requirements; and
(2) Information and data system costs associated with loan tracking and fund management.

At the point where the administration account adequately covers the program administration costs, the department may no longer use the federal administration allowance. If a federal capitalization grant is awarded after that point, all federal capitalization grant dollars must be used for making loans.
