AUGUSTA — Several sites around Mount Desert Island are named on the Maine Department of Environmental Protection’s nonpoint priority watersheds list of impaired or threatened waters.
The DEP has issued a request for proposals for projects to control pollution in these areas and conduct watershed-based plan development.
The department is inviting proposals for projects to help communities develop a nine-element watershed-based plan to restore impaired water bodies or protect threatened waters that are named on the DEP’s list.
The DEP anticipates that $61,600 of federal Clean Water Act funds will be available. The DEP expects to award two to four grants with individual awards ranging from approximately $10,000 to $42,000.
Deadline for submitting a proposal is no later than 4 p.m. on May 3.
