BACKGROUND: 

On September 21, 2010, the Board approved an Interlocal Agreement between Clark County and the Clark County Water Reclamation District (District), wherein the District performs certain water quality functions on behalf of the County, including responsibilities related to the Clark County 208 Area Wide Water Quality Management Plan required by the Federal Clean Water Act and NRS Chapter 244A.

The Nevada Division of Environmental Protection (NDEP) annually notifies the District of the opening of the Nonpoint Source (NPS) Pollution Prevention Program 319(h) Grant available for work to prevent or control nonpoint source water pollution, the leading cause of water quality impairment in Nevada (Attachment 1). The deadline for submission is September 23, 2022.

The District, on behalf of Clark County, is pursuing these funds to assist the Water Quality Program in educating businesses and the general public on issues surrounding NPS pollution in Southern Nevada; informing the public about simple steps they can take to reduce their impact on the water quality of local waterways; and providing NPS educational materials and outreach events to the general public. The program requires matching funds in the amount of 50% which will be provided through staff salaries, benefits, and matched budgeted funds. The attached application specifies these costs and describes the work to be performed (Attachment 2).

This agenda item has been reviewed and approved by the District Attorney's Office.
