All States to Share in Water Quality Monitoring Funds

May 26, 2005

Every state will get additional water quality monitoring funds as a result of an EPA decision to target a $9.92 million increase in fiscal year 2005 water pollution control grants for these activities.

Each year, EPA awards funds under Section 106 of the Clean Water Act to assist states (including territories and the District of Columbia), Indian Tribes, and interstate agencies in establishing and implementing water pollution control programs.

EPA will award each state an additional $172,000 in funding, while each territory and the District of Columbia will receive $86,000.
