Broadly, the goal of this solicitation is to work towards achieving SNEP’s Strategic Plan goals of healthy waters and resilient communities and further SNEP’s priority actions regarding increasing available solutions and capacity around decentralized wastewater treatment (see Strategic Plan). Ultimately, projects selected under this solicitation should in some way improve, or work towards improving, regional coastal waters and/or build resilience to the impacts of climate change. It should be noted that projects do not necessarily need to be located near the coast to have an impact on coastal waters. Applicants should, however, be able to explain how their project has a nexus with coastal waters (e.g., by being upstream of them).
Within the above-mentioned broader goals, SNEP is seeking project proposals that address any, or multiple, of the following topics leading to the enhancement of decentralized wastewater treatment management.
