Department of Environmental Protection Grants for Stream Crossing Improvements
In an effort to improve public safety and minimize impacts on water quality and aquatic habitat, The Department of Environmental Protection is inviting proposals for projects to implement public infrastructure improvements at stream crossings, including culvert upgrades.
Beginning May 29, 2015, eligible recipients may apply for grant monies for improvements to public infrastructure. Project proposals much address improvements, modifications, repairs or upgrades to existing culverts or stream crossings. Eligible recipients must describe how the proposed project meets the following criteria:
- Benefits water quality
- Improves habitat for wildlife, fish and other aquatic life ( such as through the replacement of blocked or poorly sized culverts or stream crossings)
- Improves public safety by reducing risk of infrastructure failure (such as culvert washouts)
- Includes provisions for climate resiliency (such as flood protection, prevention and control at the project site and downstream)
For more information please visit Maine DEP’s website or contact Leslie Anderson at email@example.com.
