SSTS Program Enhancement Grant Program - 2010
Multiple Local Government Units
Successful long‐term treatment of sewage depends on a system capable of providing adequate treatment and effective on‐going operation and maintenance. Clean Water Fund Subsurface Sewage Treatment System (SSTS) Program Enhancement funds are used by counties to strengthen programs dedicated to SSTS ordinance management and enforcement. These funds are used for a variety of tasks required to successfully implement a local SSTS program including inventories, enforcement, and databases to insure SSTS maintenance reporting programs. These efforts enhance environmental protection as well as reduce water pollution and human health impacts.
14 projects totaling $860,000 were awarded in FY2010. 2 of those projects were to conduct SSTS inventories.
