In a recent visit to West Salem, U.S. EPA Administrator Michael Regan discussed a $7 million federally funded expansion of the village’s wastewater treatment plant.

The expansion aims to boost the plant’s capacity and reduce nutrient discharges. 

A release from the Environmental Protection Agency shows Regan met with state officials Wednesday to highlight funding coming from the agency’s Clean Water State Revolving Fund through the bipartisan infrastructure law. 

According to Regan, Wisconsin is set to receive over $142 million through the revolving fund this year. 

“And there will be more to come over the next five years,” he said in the release. “When we talk about building a better America, this is what we mean.”

Regan also visited La Crosse, where new electric buses are coming online. 

Regan’s stop comes after Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg on Tuesday visited a Coloma training facility for operating engineers to highlight the infrastructure law.
