From the Document: "The Committee on Environment and Public Works, to which was referred the bill (S. 3590) to amend the Safe Drinking Water Act to reauthorize certain provisions, and for other purposes, having considered the same, reports favorably thereon with an amendment in the nature of a substitute and recommends that the bill, as amended, do pass. [...] The Drinking Water Infrastructure Act of 2020 (DWIA), creates, updates, and improves Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) programs associated with drinking water infrastructure under the Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA). DWIA reauthorizes critical SDWA programs to promote compliance with drinking water standards, reform drinking water programs, and promote resilience of drinking water systems. This bill expands program eligibility and opportunities for small, rural, tribal and disadvantaged communities. The bill also enhances lead reduction programs, increases funding for the treatment of emerging contaminants including perfluoroalkyl and polyfluoroalkyl substances, increases funding for technical assistance, and authorizes grants to assist communities and drinking water systems with SDWA compliance."
