Cost-share funding, FY 2015–2016
Districtwide Cost-Share Funding Program
This program allows local governments and other entities to share costs for projects that assist in creating sustainable water resources, provide flood protection and enhance conservation efforts.
Projects considered for funding shall benefit one or more of the four district core mission areas, including:
District Core Mission Areas
- Water Supply:
- Water conservation that prevents and reduces wasteful or unreasonable uses of water to improve efficiency of use and to avoid using water for either unnecessary purposes or purposes that can be achieved reasonably without the use of water.
- Alternative water supply development that replaces existing or planned groundwater use with other sources such as reclaimed water, surface water and seawater
- Water resource development that increases the source of water available, such as providing storage of wet weather flows for potential use during dry periods.
- Water Quality:
- Water quality/nutrient-loading reduction: Nutrient reduction projects can include reduction or elimination of domestic wastewater discharges, removal of onsite sewage treatment and disposal systems and connection to central sewer, stormwater storage and infrastructure modification, sediment reduction facilities and retrofits.
- Natural Systems Restoration:
- Measurable resource benefits to streams, lakes, wetlands, springs and aquifers.
- Flood Protection:
- Address flood protection issues on an intermediate or regional scale.
Additional information about FY 2017’s funding program, including dates, applications, and guidance, will be posted early in 2016.
- Dale Jenkins:
- Mark Brandenburg:
- The district will select projects that it determines provide the most beneficial water resource results.
