State Of Iowa Offers Funding For Watershed Improvements

  • Photo
DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) Local government agencies may now apply for state funds to help build projects designed to improve water quality.

Iowa Secretary of Agriculture Bill Northey says local watershed improvement committees, soil and water conservation districts, public water supply utilities, county conservation boards, cities and counties may apply for money from the $3 million program.

Each project can request up to $300,000 in funding over three years.

Projects eligible for funding include those addressing agricultural runoff and drainage, flood prevention, stream bank erosion, municipal discharge, storm water runoff and industrial discharge.

At least $1.5 million of the fund must be used to support projects focused on implementing the Iowa Water Quality Initiative.

Applications are due on Oct. 15. Awards will be announced in November by the Watershed Improvement Review Board.
