Clean water projects receive state funding


Washington State Department of Ecology announced Whitman County will receive about two million dollars in grants for clean water projects.

Jessica Self, Palouse Conservation District grants and development manager, said the Whitman County Conservation District received three grants totaling $1 million.

She said $500,000 was awarded for direct seeding, a restoration process where farmers use a special drill to seed crops.

“It is a ‘not-killing-the-ground’ option,” Self said.

The grant is for a span of three years, and 12 landowners county-wide will seed more than 9,000 acres.
