The Small Community Water Infrastructure Exchange (SCWIE) is a network of water funding officials. Under the auspices of the Council of Infrastructure Financing Authorities (CIFA), a group of public and non-profit environmental funding and technical assistance officials have come together to create SCWIE.
Posted on the website are the names, telephone numbers and e-mail addresses for all the key small community contacts in each state. If there is a small community coordinating group (Statewide Support Group) in a state, the contact person is listed as well a link to the group’s website (if there is one).
In support of the effort by USEPA/RD to promote sustainable rural water and waste water systems, SCWIE surveyed the Statewide Support Groups to ascertain their current level of activity. The 2015 Survey can be downloaded from the Links section.
Please use this information to communicate directly with your peers about what you are doing in your state to assist small and/or rural communities with their environmental infrastructure needs. Please feel free to ask them about what they are doing.
