California DFA Assistance for LSL Inventory

The California Department of Financial Assistance (DFA) is holding a “listening session” on April 4th (from 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm) on options for funding assistance to prepare lead service line (LSL) inventories under the LCR Revisions. Copied below is a paragraph from the DFA announcement.

“To assist community water systems to comply with the LCRR and meet funding requirements, DFA staff are evaluating options for using set-aside funds from the LSLR grant (up to 10% of the awarded amount) to contract with third parties to complete community water system inventories of service lines owned by both water systems and their customers.”

California received $250 M from the federal Bipartisan Infrastructure Law (BIL) to support lead service line replacement (LSLR). The deadline for preparing the inventory is October 16, 2024.
