Kentucky Will Dole Out $1.8 Million in Federal Grants to Stop Water Pollution
The grants have been made available to protect already clean waters and to pay for cleaning up polluted streams, rivers, lakes and underground aquifers.
The grants are for watershed restoration projects and for watershed implementation plan development, as well as for other projects that reduce and prevent runoff pollution.
The funds are provided by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and can be used to pay for up to 60 percent of the total cost for each project.
The Kentucky Division of Water determines which projects receive the funding.
