DNREC and Delaware’s Division of Public Health are looking clean up the state’s drinking water. The agencies are now accepting grant applications from local governments and conservation districts for matching grants for wastewater, surface water, and drinking water project planning. Eligible projects include planning, and feasibility analysis of wastewater and/or drinking water projects; storm water retrofits; green technology practices; stream and wetland restoration projects; small watershed studies; master surface water and drainage plans; and other source water pollution control projects. Grant applications up to $50,000 will be considered with a one-to-one cash match requirement. Proposals must be received by 4:30 PM on Wednesday March 28th.
