Clean Water Act Section 319 Grants/Nonpoint Source Program (DEQ/WQD)

Section 319 grant funds are federal funds provided to the state under the Clean Water Act to reduce nonpoint sources of pollution to surface water and ground water. Nonpoint source pollution occurs when surface water runoff from rainfall or snowmelt travels over and/or percolates through the ground and picks up contaminants. These contaminants can be deposited into streams, lakes, rivers, and ground water. Post-wildfire erosion resulting in sediment loading to nearby streams/rivers would be an example of nonpoint source pollution.
