Washington proposes $386 million for statewide clean water initiatives, includes Spokane Conservation District
SPOKANE, Wash. — The Department of Ecology has proposed to award $386 million in grants and loans for 134 high-priority clean water projects across the state of Washington.
The Water Quality Combined Funding Program supports communities by helping them upgrade wastewater treatment and sewer systems, manage polluted stormwater and complete a variety of other projects to prevent and clean up diffuse sources of pollution, also known as nonpoint pollution.
Here are some of the Clear Water highlighted projects:
- The Spokane Conservation District
- $1 million will go to build on previous work to prevent stream bank erosion and install riparian plantings along Hangman Creek.
- Clark Conservation District
- $500,000 will go to build on a previous program in Clark County focused on the East Fork Lewis River Watershed. This proposal expands the program county-wide, and includes pollution source identification, targeted outreach and voluntary implementation of best management practices.
