Show Me the Money: Accessing Funding through Federal Programs

In this “In the kNOW” webinar, we will describe the primary programs that will be used to distribute the Federal stimulus dollars to water sector projects; how to access those funds; and the key attributes of projects that are successful in securing Federal funding support. We will also share the benefits you can achieve by taking advantage of these new programs, along with information about important previously existing Federal funding sources, such as the low-interest loans with flexible financing provided through the Water Infrastructure Finance and Innovation Act (WIFIA) program, now in its fifth year. You will hear insights and successful case examples from Jacobs staff who have helped clients secure Federal and State financing for billions of dollars in water infrastructure capital projects, and from one of the senior underwriters in EPA’s WIFIA loan program.

Leveraging Collaborative Delivery Models to Maximize Infrastructure Bill Funding

The Infrastructure Investment & Jobs Act contains $55 billion in infrastructure spending spread over five years for water, wastewater and stormwater funding programs. Owners need to move quickly in order to secure these funds. One way to do that is to consider alternatives to the traditional design-bid-build delivery approach. This “In the kNOW” webinar will describe the range of collaborative delivery models available and highlight how each can reduce project timelines and improve project outcomes. Collaborative delivery is the fastest growing form of project delivery in the water industry – for a reason. These approaches take various forms, but each involve close collaboration among all stakeholders—owners, designers, constructors, operators, technology providers, and equipment suppliers—through all stages of a project.

Green Infrastructure for Healthy Communities

Utilities and municipalities are challenged to go beyond traditional levels of service to deliver solutions that mitigate climate impacts, improve infrastructure and address broader community needs. Due to its cross-cutting benefits as a strategy, communities are increasing prioritization and investments in green infrastructure to manage stormwater objectives while enhancing community health, improving overall infrastructure, and providing opportunities, especially for disadvantaged populations. Additionally, as a nature-based solution, green infrastructure provides a resilient solution set to mitigate and address the impacts of climate change. This webinar will provide motivation and drivers for green infrastructure, case studies and concepts exploring policy and equity for green infrastructure from stormwater parks to healthy streets to a wide variety of community amenities.

Identifying Smarter Solutions to Infrastructure Challenges Using Optimization

Infrastructure projects are becoming more challenging as we address aging infrastructure, capacity issues, climate change, population growth and conflicts with other existing infrastructure. Optimization technology employs sophisticated algorithms, enhanced computation and automation to assist water utilities in finding solutions to these complex infrastructure problems that maximize benefits and minimize costs. In this webinar, we will present examples from Anglian Water’s Strategic Pipeline Alliance, a CSO Long-Term Control Plan and others with our partner Optimatics.
