EPA Awards Millions to Universities Studying Wastewater
EPA has awarded $1,490,040 to the University of New Orleans Research and Technology Foundation for projects in the Lake Pontchartrain Basin. These projects will focus on the reduction or elimination of sewerage related pollution and provide education and outreach to improve water quality in the basin. The grant will also fund a study of wastewater collection and treatment throughout unincorporated areas of St. Helena Parish.
EPA also has awarded $25,660 to the Southern
Arkansas University Tech. Funds awarded from this grant will allow the state to
assist small communities with minor wastewater discharges to solve operational
problems by providing no-cost on-site technical assistance.
