(DALLAS – July 20, 2012) The Environmental Protection Agency has awarded $57,500 to the Upper Colorado River Authority (UCRA). The UCRA will use the grant to track sources of bacteria in a San Angelo-area waterway to help plan water quality improvement strategies.

The grant will also fund development of environmental education programs for San Angelo students. A water quality stewardship program will target schools with lower socioeconomic populations, while an additional program will be developed for all seventh-graders in the San Angelo Independent School District.
