DEC seeks clean water projects for grant awards

    Juneau, Alaska (KINY) - The Department of Environmental Conservation is accepting water quality project proposals to protect or improve Alaska’s surface waters.

    Over one million dollars will be awarded to eligible projects under the Alaska Clean Water Actions grant program.  

    “New this year is additional funding focused on treating stormwater runoff using green infrastructure” said Randy Bates, DEC Director of Water. “We work with communities statewide to take care of water bodies where we live, work, and play.”

    Grant funds can be used for projects that: monitor water quality, implement public outreach, conduct watershed planning, or design and construct of green infrastructure to address polluted runoff. Projects must begin and reach completion within the grant window of spring 2023 through early 2025.

    The request for proposals opened Monday. All applications must be submitted on-line by November 9.
