Clean Water Committee

The Clean Water Committee’s main function is to administer water quality programs. This includes the Clean Water Program, a grant-giving initiative that helps landowners protect surface and ground water quality. The twenty year old program has dispensed $2.2 million in grants, helping to complete more than 720 projects across the watershed.
