DEWEY BEACH, Del. -  The Delaware Department of Natural Resources is now accepting grant proposals for wastewater and surface water project planning.  

Basically, DNREC will approve grants for feasibility studies for future projects.

The grant applications are up to $50,000 with a 1:1 cash match requirement.

DNREC used to do yearly solicitations, but now they have upped it to quarterly because of the increased interest.

One group applying is the Delaware Center for the Inland Bays.

"Well the water quality in all of Delaware is highly impaired," Marianne Walch, the Estuary Science and Restoration Coordinator said. "80 to 90 percent of our waterways do not meet the fishable and swimmable goals that are set by our water quality standards."

Grant applications are available for state, county and municipal governments as well as governmental subdivisions. Proposals must be received by November 19th.
