Renewable Resource Grants to Private Entities
Owners of small systems have difficulty in meeting Safe Drinking Water Act regulations, but must meet the same requirements that municipal water systems face. Most of the funds are targeted to assist small, privately owned water systems.
High-hazard, private dam and water measuring projects are solicited by the Dam Safety Bureau and the Water Management Bureau of the Water Resources Division of DNRC.
Projects Not Eligible For Funding:
- Feasibility studies,
- and/or public information projects
Financial assistance is available to any individual, association, partnership, or corporation (both for-profit and nonprofit).
Grants to private entities are limited by law to 25 percent of the project cost or $5,000, whichever is less.
