Harrisburg, PA – Rep. Tim Twardzik (R-Schuylkill) is excited to announce that the Schuylkill Conservation District has been awarded $277,657 as part of the 2024 Countywide Action Plan (CAP) implementation grants.
The Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) has awarded $19.3 million in 2024 Countywide Action Plan (CAP) Implementation Grants to county teams across Pennsylvania’s share of the Chesapeake Bay Watershed. These grants support their efforts in reducing nutrient and sediment pollution to restore the health of local streams, rivers and lakes.
“I look forward to seeing the progress that will be achieved by this year’s grant recipients. Their efforts not only benefit our local communities but also make a positive impact on the entire Commonwealth and beyond,” said Twardzik.
The 2024 CAP Implementation Grant round brought in applications for 226 projects that will be completed in the next 12 to 18 months, resulting in an estimated reduction of over 170,000 pounds/year of nitrogen, 122,000 pounds/year of phosphorus and 36.3 million pounds/year of sediment.
