Sound Rivers To Begin New Grant Project

Earlier this year, Sound Rivers partnered with several organizations on an application for North Carolina 205(j) Water Quality Management Planning Grants. We worked with the Mideast Commission Council of Governments, NC State University, Pitt Community College, Beaufort Community College, and Beaufort County Schools to plan for stormwater management.

Sound Rivers and project partners will complete stormwater assessments on the campuses of Pitt and Beaufort Community Colleges and on two public school campuses in Beaufort County. The project will identify areas that can benefit from stormwater runoff treatment before entering our waterways. We are extremely excited to continue this important stormwater work with existing and new partners. Work will begin this summer and be completed by the end of the year.

The 205(j) Grant is funded through the Clean Water Act and administered by the North Carolina Division of Water Resources.
