EPA Awards Grants to Further Source Water Protection


EPA recently awarded $600,000 in grants to the Trust for Public Land (TPL), in partnership with the Association of State Drinking Water Administrators and the River Network, and the Smart Growth Leadership Institute to enhance source water protection at the local and watershed levels by encouraging more effective collaboration and better harmony between various state policies and programs. Working together will maximize the effectiveness of initiatives taken by land use planners, water utilities, watershed associations, government officials, conservationists, farmers and foresters in protecting drinking water resources.

Over the four year grants, the awardees will select seven states as partners for a program focused on Enabling Source Water Protection: Aligning State Land Use and Water Protection Programs. Applications are being accepted from states interested in participating in this effort. Information describing the project, including applications and important dates, is at
