LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has awarded a $13.5 million grant to an Arkansas commission to help install, upgrade and replace water infrastructure.

The grant to the Arkansas Natural Resource Commission will be used primarily to provide loans to eligible public water systems to ensure safe drinking water.

The grant was awarded as part of the Drinking Water State Revolving Fund to make money available to drinking water systems to finance infrastructure improvements. The program also emphasizes providing funds to small and disadvantaged communities and to programs that encourage pollution prevention as a tool for ensuring safe drinking water.
