The Mississippi Watershed Management Organization (MWMO) is developing an annual Greening Program that will fund up to $200,000 in water quality improvement projects in 2005.
In January of 2005 MWMO staff will be working with the MWMO's Citizen Advisory Committee (CAC) to determine what types of projects, groups and organizations will be eligible for these funds in 2005 and beyond.
The CAC will also be asked to discuss and comment on revisions to the MWMO's Watershed Management Plan (WMP). These revisions will update existing MWMO programs, capitol projects, and policies. The updated WMP will guide the activities of the MWMO over the next 3-5 years.
If you would like to be a Citizen Advisory Committee representative for your community on these issues, please submit an application to the MWMO.
An application form can be downloaded from the MWMO's Web site at www.mwmo.org/cac.html
or sent out upon request. To request an application, please contact Dan Kalmon, MWMO Program Manager at 612- 673-2687.
