Federal Update
State Updates
  • Massachusetts' In The Main Fall 2004 newsletter (PDF file, 4 pages)
  • Deadline for California water systems to request funding for WQ projects under Proposition 50 is December 1
    Commentary:
    Over $500 million is available in grants (some with match required) for a myriad of types of projects. Examples include: $47-plus million for security, 1-to-1 match required, max of $10 million grant; $62-plus million divided evenly between 5 new grant programs for SWS, contaminant removal technology, monitoring, source protection and DBP treatment; $23 million specified for UV and ozone projects. Over 1/2 of the funds are focused on reducing Southern California water utilities' reliance on Colorado River water. Prop. 50 also provided the state's 20% required match for federal DWSRF funding for a few years down the road.
