As Vermont prepares to significantly increase the funds available for clean water projects, the state’s Clean Water Board is reaching out to Vermonters, asking them to weigh in on the best way to allocate funds. Public input will help the Clean Water Board make its budget recommendation, representing approximately $33 million of the $50 million anticipated to be available for water quality projects in State Fiscal Year 2021. Clean water funding supports municipalities, farmers, and others implementing priority projects to improve water quality in Vermont’s lakes, rivers, and wetlands.
Your participation in the clean water funding and budget process will help the State better understand public priorities for funding clean water improvements.
