FY-2022 Nonpoint Source Pollution Grant Awards

The Division of Water Quality would like to thank all those that applied for Nonpoint Source Pollution Grants this year. Once again, we received many great applications and would have liked to have funded more, but our funding is limited. Please remember that the targeted basin for 2022 was the Sevier/Cedar/Beaver basin, therefore the majority of the funding was allocated to projects within that basin. If your project was selected for funding, a representative from the Division of Water Quality will be in contact with you within the next month or two to walk you through the contracting process. If your application was not selected for funding and you would like to discuss the grant selection process or discuss why your project was not funded, please feel free to contact Jim Bowcutt ( or (801) 536-4336), and we will try to clear up any concerns that you may have.

We appreciate your interest in the State Nonpoint Source Pollution Program.
