Clean Water Act 106, Groundwater/Wellhead Protection
The purpose of this grant extension is to provide continued assistance to the State of Idaho so they can protect and improve the quality of their underground water supplies. The Idaho Department of Environmental Quality will use these grant funds to develop and implement plans to restore local ground water areas contaminated by nitrate, develop and promote guidance documents that are protective of ground water, and encourage the use of Best Management Practices that will improve ground water quality. These activities help ensure that Idaho will have adequate supplies of high quality water in the future to ensure human health and economic growth.
