Grants Available for Local Watershed AMD Abatement Projects

[29 Pa.B. 2188]

   DEP's Bureau of Mining and Reclamation is accepting project proposals for acid mine drainage (AMD) pollution abatement projects to be funded between October 1 and September 30, 2000. Projects will be funded by the FY 99 Clean Water Act, Section 104(b)(3) Federal grant money, or other funding that may become available. Moneys under this program are to be used on a watershed basis to fund projects. Acceptable projects involve watershed group formation, watershed assessments, development and implementation of watershed rehabilitation plans or demonstrations of AMD remediation technologies in Pennsylvania watersheds.

   Watershed activities must focus on the causes, effects, extent, prevention, reduction or elimination of water pollution from abandoned coal mines or related facilities. Emphasis will be placed on a holistic watershed approach supporting the principles of Reclaim PA for water quality improvements and on projects that support this approach. Each proposal must include a description of how the environmental impact of the project will be evaluated. Proposals should include a long-range plan and a demonstrated commitment to efforts that will extend beyond the proposed contractual period. Demonstration projects should have potential for Statewide application. Selection criteria will be weighted to favor AMD technology demonstration proposals. Deadline for project proposals is 4 p.m. on June 4, 1999. Project proposals received after this date will not be considered.

   A copy of the proposal guide is available by contacting Lou DiLissio at (717) 787-7007, or accessing the DEP website at
