Interior Invests in 36 Drought Resiliency Projects

Selected projects intended to increase stores of clean drinking water.

The Department of the Interior (DOI) has announced that 36 drought resiliency projects will receive $84.7 million through funding from the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law. The money will be used by communities in the western states to implement innovative ways to increase stores of drinkable water, including rain collection and purification, underground water storage, and ion exchange treatments to reuse existing water supplies.

“As climate change exacerbates drought impacts throughout the Western United States, the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law is advancing our work to invest in innovative, locally-led water infrastructure projects and provide clean, reliable water to families and communities across the country,” said Assistant Secretary for Water and Science Tanya Trujillo.

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For Interior Secretary Haaland to be led by God as she oversees the department.
  • For Assistant Secretary Trujillo as she leads the Water and Science Office.
  • For the researchers and developers who receive the infrastructure funding to succeed in their conservation endeavors.
