The Energy and <br />Environmental Research Center out of UND has spearheaded the effort. <br />The objective of the group is to coordinate the storm water activities <br />mandated to each political subdivision by Phase II of the Clean Water Act. <br /> <br />In the past the EERC has successfully applied for and received EP A grant <br />funding for most of these efforts. The EERC is asking for a letter of <br />support for its grant application to continue to receive EP A funding in the <br />future. <br /> <br />Each political subdivision is required to pay a total of $1 ,000 per year to <br />participate in the Regional Storm Water Coordination program. I believe <br />Cass County receives very good value for the $1,000 annual cost in that it <br />allows us to take advantage of the grant funding that the EERC receives. <br /> <br />SUGGESTED MOTION: Authorize Chair to sign letter of support for the <br />Energy and Environmental Research Center's Regional Storm Water <br />Education and Outreach Program initiatives. <br /> <br />Kb/kb <br /> <br />J:\Admin-Eng\Commission Corrsp\2004 Correspondènce\Consent Agenda 64th Av property purchase 12 JOO4.doc <br />
