Montpelier, VT – On Wednesday, August 3, 2022, join members of the Department of Environmental Conservation’s Clean Water Initiative Program (CWIP) to learn about funding resources that support clean water in Vermont, including upcoming opportunities and eligibility.
Vermont’s rivers, lakes, and ponds are one of the joys of summertime and are an important environmental and economic resource for residents and visitors. Protecting and restoring the water quality in Vermont is a priority. The State of Vermont funds clean water projects to prevent pollution from washing into these waters from the landscape.
Beginning this year, the amount of funding in Vermont for clean water will increase beyond historic levels. There are many current and upcoming funding opportunities supporting partner organizations in completing a wide range of projects to protect and restore clean water in Vermont. From restoring rivers and floodplains to natural, least erosive conditions to the mitigation of polluted stormwater runoff from pavement, clean water work and the funding that supports it is diverse. Increasing funds brings new opportunities and challenges to improve management of and relationships with our natural landscape.
