These grants allow the PDTRA to install conservation practices, assist in enrolling landowners into federal programs, educate residents and students on the importance of clean water, and monitor the quality of water in the watershed.
The majority of the funding from each grant goes towards voluntarily implementing Best Management Practices (BMPs) and other conservation programs. These practices include:
The reason for designating most of our funds to BMPs and conservation programs is to work toward restoring and preserving water bodies, so our community can enjoy natural resources without having to worry about pollution.
With the help of all counties, state agencies, federal agencies and people like you the PDTRA is working hard to use these funds efficiently to improve water quality throughout the watershed.
When designing projects and applying for funding we refer to County Water Plans, Total Maximum Daily Load Analysis, the Watershed Restoration and Protection Strategy Report, and various implementation plans. These documents help us determine pollution reduction needs and prioritize/ target potential non-point source pollution within the watershed.
