to request funding
for WQ projects under
Proposition 50 is December 1
Over $500 million is available
in grants (some with match
required) for a myriad of types
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

state's 20% required match for
federal DWSRF funding for a few
years down the road.

acknowledge that there would not be unanimity on how
to categorize news about new WQ regulations!)
