This program is administered by the Environmental Protection Agency. Eligible projects will provide water quality improvement through the construction of BMPs to decrease stormwater runoff prior to release into rivers, streams, and lakes. Sample projects include: Reconnection of a stream with its floodplain (e. g. , two-stage ditch, daylighting); Treatment and flow control of stormwater runoff at sites directly upstream or downstream of an impervious area that currently impacts river, stream, or lake water quality through stormwater runoff discharge;
Treatment and flow control of water generated from impervious surfaces associated with urban development (such as roads and buildings). Maximum grant is $2. 5 million, minimum is $75,000.
