U.S. EPA Targeted Watersheds Grant Program - $9 Million for Watershed Protection
Twelve coalitions in as many states are finalists in the competition to apply for U.S. Environmental Protection Agency grants totaling $9 million to help protect and restore some of the nation's key watersheds. The coalitions selected have been recognized for setting clear goals and comprehensive watershed plans. Projects include stream stabilization, culvert replacement, and habitat enhancement activities. Funds also will support agricultural management practices in rural areas and stormwater management practices in urban areas. Many of the projects this year will benefit spawning fish species and natural fisheries. The Targeted Watersheds Grant Program fosters community-based initiatives to help protect, preserve, and restore local or regional watersheds. The goal of the program is to build on the successes of partners who have completed all of the watershed assessments and are ready to carry out their plans. More information about this year's selections or about the Targeted Watershed Grant program is at: http://www.epa.gov/owow/watershed/initiative
EPA Web Site - Section 319 Success Stories
This website features projects receiving grant funds from the section 319 program [http://www.epa.gov/owow/nps/cwact.html ] that have achieved documented water quality improvements. Improvements are demonstrated through the achievement of: water quality standards for one or more pollutants/uses; nonpoint source total maximum daily load allocations (and removal from the state's section 303(d) list of impaired waters); measurable, in-stream reduction in a pollutant; or improvement in a parameter that indicates stream health (e.g., increases in fish or macroinvertebrate counts). Stories also demonstrate innovative strategies used to reduce nonpoint source pollution, the growth of partnerships, and diversity of funding sources.
