The Board of Directors of the Muskingum Watershed Conservancy District (MWCD) recently approved the tenth grant of the year which brings MWCD grant funding in 2016 to over $500,000. The grant program, called Partners in Watershed Management (PWM), provides for the use of maintenance assessment funds to assist local communities, groups, and organizations in implementing water quality projects, flood reduction and mitigation programs, and watershed education efforts throughout the 18 county Conservancy District. This highly successful program was instituted in 2009 and has provided over $5.6 million in grant funding for 79 projects throughout the Muskingum Watershed Conservancy District. For every $1 granted by MWCD in 2016 another $2.75 of funding is leveraged from other funding sources for the specified water quality projects.
