Clean Water Board Seeks Public Input on $46.9M Available for 2023

Vermont’s Clean Water Board is asking the public to weigh in on how they would like to prioritize approximately $46.9 million available through the State Fiscal Year 2023 Clean Water Budget to clean up water pollution across the state.

The Board is asking Vermonters to provide feedback through an online questionnaire by Friday, November 19 at 4:00 p.m, on whether they believe funding levels are sufficient and whether they agree with the Board’s proposed prioritization of funding across projects. The Clean Water Board will consider public input before making its final Clean Water Budget recommendation in December 2021.

“The $46.9 million available in the 2023 clean water budget is an all-time high in funds available to improve Vermont’s water quality, in part thanks to additional leveraging of federal American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) funds,” said Natural Resources Secretary Julie Moore. “This is an exciting milestone and underscores the importance of public input to inform funding priorities.”
