DWSRF Small Systems Session This session will focus specifically on small drinking water systems (serving less than 1,000) and the DWSRF process. Taking on a drinking water infrastructure project and navigating the process to do so can be overwhelming for small water systems typically run by a group of volunteers. The NHDES Drinking Water and Groundwater Bureau (DWGB) Small System Section and DWSRF Program staff are dedicated to helping small systems successfully complete DWSRF funded projects to provide customers with safe, reliable, efficient, and affordable drinking water. During the morning session, DWBG staff will provide small public water system participants with an overview of the funding program and application process from application submittal, project design, bid, construction through construction completion, and disbursement process.
