The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has awarded $1,097,400 to the Missouri Department of Natural Resources under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009. A total of almost $40 million will be awarded nationally to states for Water Quality Management Planning (WQMP) grants.
WQMP grants support a broad range of activities, such as setting standards, monitoring the quality of the water, developing plans to restore polluted waters, and identifying ways to protect healthy waters from becoming polluted. Grants are awarded to state agencies and some of the funds can be awarded to regional and interstate planning organizations.
