Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

This grant is projected to energize a local contingency of people interested in water quality to become more active in the water quality arena. Direct project outcomes will be measured by the reduction in pollutants to lakes where their Associations have been accepted into the grant program and projects are installed. Where TMDLs are approved, an estimated percentage reduction will be calculated for each project installed.
