October 20, 2015 4:30 pm is the deadline for public comment on proposed Clean Water Fund allocation priorities. The Vermont Clean Water Fund and its board were created by Act 64, also known as the Vermont Clean Water Act, which was passed by the legislature during the 2015 session and signed by Governor Shumlin on June 16, 2015. The purpose of the Clean Water Fund is to provide direct financial support for actions that will reduce pollution washing into Vermont’s waterways. The Clean Water Fund Board, which administers the Fund, includes representatives from the agencies of Administration, Agriculture, Farm and Markets, Commerce and Community Development, Natural Resources and Transportation. The Clean Water Fund Board is charged with developing a spending proposal for the Clean Water Fund, which shall be used by the Agency of Administration for the State budget that is transmitted to the Legislature. The Board met on September 8, 2015, and approved a draft proposal to invest Clean Water Fund revenues in State Fiscal Years (SFY) 2016 and 2017 for public notice and comment. The draft proposal can be found on the Clean Water Vermont webpage

The Board will consider submitted comments in preparation of a final spending proposal, anticipated to be completed in November, 2015. Reference the Vermont Clean Water Fund in your submission.
