Abstract

The Board, codified in Chapter 466A, is an independent, self-governing body directed to improve the quality of water in the state. The Board is authorized to request water quality improvement applications from soil and water conservation districts, local watershed improvement committees, cities, public water supply utilities, and county conservation boards and award grants to these entities. These grants are issued from the Watershed Improvement Fund. In 2007, the Fund was allocated $5 million for state fiscal year 2008 for water quality improvements from the tobacco settlement trust fund. On September 24. 2007, the Board awarded grants to ten applicants. Total amount allocated to these projects is $2.656.842. A second Request for applications is under way and will close February 22, 2008.
