State proposes grants to Whitman County water quality projects, January 18, 2021

The Washington Department of Ecology is proposing grants and loans to five Whitman County projects focused on water quality, including $1.5 million for the Palouse Conservation District.

The department is exploring awarding $282 million total to projects across the state. Final funding is contingent on approval in the state’s 2021-23 biennial budget.

The Palouse Conservation District could receive $500,000 to create 5 acres of riparian buffers and 9,000 acres of direct seeding to improve water quality in Whitman County streams.
