The Connecticut Department of Energy and Environmental Protection is accepting applications for Section 319 Nonpoint Source grants.

Project Priorities for FY2019:

Watershed Based Plan Implementation Projects
Project priorities for FY 2019 will continue to stress implementation projects in watersheds that have approved Watershed Based Plans (WBP) and that lead to targeted pollutant load reductions, improved habitat conditions, or dam removal.  Implementation projects should have a clear connection to the management goals and objectives of the WBP and show progress towards attaining water quality goals.  Applicants are strongly urged to consult with DEEP Watershed Managers to ensure their proposals are consistent with and in watersheds with approved WBPs.

Implementation Projects Not Associated with WBPs
DEEP may consider implementation projects that are not connected to an existing WBP, but target impaired waters.  Applicants must be able to document benefits toward pollutant load reduction and attainment of water quality standards. For implementation projects not covered under a WBP, applicants should consider including development of a WBP as part of the project proposal where practical, or documenting how the 9 Elements of Watershed Based Planning process are addressed. 

Watershed Based Plan Development
In 2019 DEEP will focus first on Action Plan development for waters which are prioritized in DEEP’s Integrated Water Resource Management.  DEEP may also consider WBP development for bodies listed as impaired that are not listed in DEEP Integrated Water Resources Management program, see Chapter 3 of the 2016 State of Connecticut Integrated Water Quality Report for a list of impaired waters.  EPA has provided detailed guidance on WBP structure and content.  See requirements for Watershed Based Plans.  When the impairment is not specific to a pollutant, or when addressing a small scale water quality problem, DEEP will consider alternative Watershed Based Plans. 

DEEP will also consider funding the development of Healthy Waters protection plans in 2019.

Implementation of Non-Structural Best Management Practices
DEEP intends to continue to support these lower priority activities as available funding allows; these projects will rank higher when they are paired with implementation projects.  Projects that provide quantifiable pollutant load reductions, will improve their likelihood for funding.
