Pollution control project funded in Centre County

BELLEFONTE — Centre County Conservation District received $1,200.00 to host two virtual workshops to educate homeowners on local water quality issues as well as highlight conservation practices that homeowners can implement on their properties to manage stormwater runoff.

“This grant allows our conservation district to address local pollution issues. Our staff will educate a variety of audiences on actions they can take to ensure there is enough clean water for future generations,” said Allyson Ulsh, Chesapeake Bay Technician. Education and outreach about the workshops is expected to begin in early Spring 2021. The district expects to hold the webinars no later than early June 2021.

A total of 38 projects will be funded in twenty-seven of the state’s counties. Projects include agricultural field days, streamside signage, homeowner workshops, and more. For a complete listing of awarded projects, visit https://tinyurl.com/2021-22NPS.
