Sen. Sherrod Brown (D–Ohio) introduced The Clean Water Affordability Act of 2012 (S. 2094) on Feb. 9 to update the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) clean water affordability policy. The bill would require EPA to integrate stormwater and wastewater control programs into a single, long-term plan. The Clean Water Affordability Act would authorize $1.8 billion over 5 years as a grant program to help financially distressed communities update aging infrastructure. The program would also implement a 75–25 cost share for municipalities that are planning, designing, and constructing treatment works to control combined and sanitary sewer overflows.
