Connecticut has drawn more than $30 million in federal clean-water funds to finance a slate of drinking-water and sewage projects statewide, authorities say.

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency issued the grants via its Clean Water and Drinking Water State Revolving Loan Fund grants, Gov. Dannel P. Malloy said Thursday.

The grants, Malloy said, will pay for ongoing or planned water infrastructure projects, including for public drinking water systems and municipal sewage plants.

"Over the past eight years, Connecticut has made significant strides in improving the state's overall drinking water quality and removing nutrient pollution from the state's waterways,'' he said in a statement.
