EPA Training for Improved Protection of Drinking Water Sources - Due 06/10/24

Opportunity Title:

Training for Improved Protection of Drinking Water Sources

 

Funder/Agency:

Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)

 

Opportunity Number:

EPA-OW-OGWDW-24-02

 

Description:

The EPA, together with states, Tribes, and its many partners, protects public health by protecting current and future drinking water sources and ensuring the availability of high-quality drinking water. Two programs within the EPA that protect drinking water sources are the Underground Injection Control and Source Water Protection programs.


The EPA’s Underground Injection Control (UIC) program protects current and future underground sources of drinking water (USDWs) from endangerment by setting minimum requirements for siting, construction, operation, and closure of injection wells that emplace fluids underground for storage or disposal. The purpose of the UIC requirements is to protect USDWs by ensuring that injected fluids do not endanger sources of drinking water or otherwise adversely affect public health. Injection wells are directly regulated by either a state or Tribal agency, or the EPA. The UIC program also provides information for owners and operators of injection wells and state regulators on how to safely operate injection wells to prevent contamination of underground sources of drinking water.


The EPA is soliciting applications from eligible applicants to provide training to develop and expand the capability of state and Tribal UIC and SWP programs. Applicants should describe their proposed approach to providing training that will achieve these objectives. Applicants are encouraged to identify additional project elements in their applications that may not be included in this funding opportunity that may contribute to overall project success.
