Drinking Water Priority Ranking List

TDEC’s DWSRF program uses a priority ranking system to develop the Priority Ranking List (PRLs). Applicants seeking funding must submit a questionnaire that includes a project description, cost estimate and project start and completion dates to the State to be placed on the list. Projects eligible for DWSRF funding are described in the EPA eligibility handbook. Projects are prioritized by those that address reducing risks to human health and/or those working to maintain or improve compliance with SDWA. Priority points will be assigned based on the severity of the problem. Projects requesting funds for ineligible activities such as fire protection, dam construction or future growth will not be assigned priority points.
