LaRosa 2017 Organizational Support Grant reports due

Reports for the pilot year of the LPP Organizational Support Grant are due. 

LPP partner participation has been responsible for translating water testing results into direct, on-the-ground actions. The LPP data have been used in the development of Total Maximum Daily Load (TMDL) pollution control plans, the identification and remediation of phosphorus pollution hotspots, and the documentation of priority subwatersheds for pollution control actions within VTDEC’s Tactical Basin Plans(TBP). The WMD recognizes the challenges the Partners face in securing funding to support the logistical aspects of water quality monitoring work. The funds awarded under this offering are intended to help fill this gap, for those groups whom are also working with the WMD and other partners in the implementation of “on-the-ground” water quality improvement projects. In 2016, the WMD released its first RFP to provide currently enrolled LPP Partners support in monitoring the effectiveness of water quality improvement practices. With the initial year of monitoring under this grant complete, these reports, which will serve to demonstrate the impact water quality improvement initiatives have on Vermon't waterways, are eagerly awaited. 

Reports should be completed using the templates developed by Kristen Underwood under contract for the DEC. Partners will use whichever of the five available templates relate to the projects they are monitoring and need submit only one final report. 

Reports should be directed to Jim Kellogg
