Title

Joint resolution authorizing an emergency appropriation for Watershed-Based Plan Implementation by the Stormwater Management Commission (SMC) in the amount of $1,189,807.03 and funded by grant 3191915 from the Illinois Environmental Protection Agency (IEPA).

Staff Summary

                     SMC has entered into an agreement with the IEPA for a grant (Grant 3191915) under Section 319 of the Clean Water Act for implementation of seven projects identified in watershed-based plans.

                     Total estimated project costs are $3,700,000, and local project sponsors will provide the required match. An emergency appropriation is needed as funds for this grant ($1,189,807.03) are not included in the current fiscal year budget.

                     SMC will administer the grant, provide administrative and technical assistance to the local project sponsors and will be reimbursed for staff time spent on the project.
