PA Assn. Of Conservation Districts Awards Water Pollution Reduction Education Grants To 26 Counties

The PA Association of Conservation Districts Thursday awarded nearly $43,000 for 26 pollution reduction projects in 26 counties.
These projects promote water pollution prevention activities through the Nonpoint Source Pollution Prevention Educational Mini-Grant Program. The projects will take place over the next 8 months.
“Today, Pennsylvania’s conservation districts received funding from the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection for educational projects. These projects are held locally. They invite citizens to learn how they can make a difference to reduce pollution,” said Brenda Shambaugh, Executive Director for the Pennsylvania Association of Conservation Districts (PACD).
Funding for the grants, up to $2,000 each, is provided through the Department of Environmental Protection under Section 319 of the Clean Water Act, administered by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.
