BOISE — The Idaho Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) today announced the award of a $40,000 wastewater planning grant to Meadow Creek Property Owners Association located in Adams County, Idaho, as part of Governor Brad Little’s “Leading Idaho” plan.
The funding will be used to prepare a wastewater planning study to evaluate the current wastewater system, prepare an environmental review, and identify needed improvements. The total project cost is $80,000, and the remaining $40,000 will be funded by Meadow Creek Property Owners Association.
DEQ’s Planning Grants Program provides assistance to eligible wastewater and drinking water systems. These grants are used to develop engineering reports identifying the most cost-effective, environmentally sound method of upgrading a system to achieve and maintain compliance with state and federal standards. Grants cover up to 50% of eligible planning costs, with the remaining balance covered by the recipient.
