DEP Announces Recipients of 2015 Grants for Stream Crossing Public Infrastructure Improvements

In November, 2014, Maine voters passed the “Clean Water for Maine” bond. As a result, $5,400,000 in funds was earmarked for vital improvement projects including stream crossing and culvert upgrades. The projects awarded will: benefit public infrastructure by replacing several culverts that are currently failing and at risk of complete washouts, open up fish spawning habitat, eliminate undersized and other impassable culverts and reduce some of the worst ongoing erosion impacts to streams, brooks, and lakes.
The DEP received 69 complete applications to review which totaled over 5 million dollars in fund requests, the Department has issued $800,000 in grant money during the first round of applications. The application for the second round of the 2015 Grants for Stream Crossing Public Infrastructure Improvements will be available beginning October 5, 2015.
