EPA makes source water protection funds available

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is seeking proposals from organizations interested in working with communities to protect their drinking water sources from contamination through a resource- or geographic-based planning approach.

June 1, 2001—The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is seeking proposals from organizations interested in working with communities to protect their drinking water sources from contamination through a resource- or geographic-based planning approach.

Communities involved in these efforts will have completed source water assessments, and must be served by public water systems that are highly or moderately at risk of contamination.

EPA funds will be used for training and technical assistance to these communities, with the goal of establishing sustainable source water protection programs. All project proposals must be received by EPA no later than June 28, 2001.

For eligibility criteria and application instructions, see the Federal Register notice at http://www.epa.gov/safewater/protect/swpfundsfr.html.
