OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has awarded more than $11 million to the Oklahoma Water Resources Board.

The grant is part of the federal agency’s Clean Water State Revolving Fund, a program that provides low-interest, flexible loans to communities to help them improve water quality and infrastructure.

The OWRB will distribute the $11.3 million as low-interest loans to a variety of recipients, including cities and rural water districts.

These groups will use the loans for projects such as replacing sewer lines, improving wastewater treatment facilities and upgrading collection systems.
