Funding Sources

Sewer and Stormwater Conservation and Efficiency Loans

RCW 35.67.360 authorizes municipal storm water and sewer utilities to make loans to customers for storm water and sewer conservation and efficiency. Counties, cities, towns, and special districts can use utility operating revenues to assist homeowners and businesses in acquiring and installing materials and equipment that will conserve or allow for more efficient use of municipal storm water and sewer services.

These loans provide another tool for local governments to work with utility customers in improving municipal water, sewer, and storm water services to better address the critical water quality and habitat conservation issues facing our state.

These loans are permitted under Article VIII, Section 10 of the Washington State Constitution, which establishes that such loans are not an improper loan of public credit.
