The Clean Water Fund Board has announced a 30-day public comment period to gather input on Vermont’s clean water funding priorities for the next fiscal year. The Clean Water Fund supports municipalities, farmers, and others in investing in priority projects to improve water quality in Vermont’s lakes, rivers, and wetlands. Your participation in the Clean Water Fund budget process will help the state better understand public priorities for funding clean water improvements. There are many opportunities to participate, including:
- Join the Clean Water Conversation on July 12, 2017. Learn about the Clean Water Fund budget process and opportunities to provide input on next year’s allocations on Wednesday, July 12, at 5 p.m. through a webinar hosted by the Department of Environmental Conservation (via Skype for Business). Attend online or with your local regional planning commission. For more information, contact Kari Dolan.
Take the Online Questionnaire by August 2, 2017. Share your input on Vermont’s draft clean water funding priorities and allocations for the next state fiscal year by completing an online questionnaire. The deadline to respond is 4:30 p.m., Wednesday, August 2. If you have any questions, or if you need a hard copy of this questionnaire to respond, contact Bethany Sargent.
