Davis-Bacon Act Compliance
The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA) is providing much-needed assistance through the State Revolving Fund (SRF) programs to communities across the country. However, this assistance comes with several Federal requirements which are unfamiliar to many assistance recipients. The State Water Resources Control Board publishes information to the public regarding Davis-Bacon Act compliance on this web page.
