Vermont is participating in the 2022 National Clean Watersheds Needs Survey. The survey starts March 1, 2022 and ends February 28, 2023 and performed by US EPA with participation from all of the States. The survey collects reports and cost information for all of the projects that are planned and needed by states and municipalities to comply with our Clean Water Act obligations. EPA will then compile the survey information and create a report to Congress.

What is Sponsorship?
The Water Infrastructure Sponsorship Program (WISPr) is intended to address a limited and under-assisted category of water resource needs in Vermont known as natural resource projects (NRP). The goal of WISPr is to counter the loss of ecological function and biological diversity that jeopardize the health of Vermont’s water resources by providing financial resources.
The Brooks Act requires that federally funded projects obtain professional design services through Qualifications Based Selection (QBS) Procurement. The Water Resources Reform and Development Act (WRRDA) of 2014 required this process for all CWSRF funded projects. There is a waiver process currently available, please talk with your project developer if your community might need a waiver.
WID has prepared several documents to help federally funded projects though the QBS procurement process:
