Point Source Implementation Grants

- Meet wasteload reductions prescribed under a total maximum daily load (TMDL) plan required by Section 303(d) of the federal Clean Water Act
- Reduce the discharge of total phosphorus to one milligram per liter or less
- Meet any other water quality-based effluent limit established under section Minnesota Statute Section 115.03, subd 1, (e)(8), that is incorporated into a permit issued by MPCA that exceeds secondary treatment limits
- Meet a total nitrogen concentration or mass limit that requires discharging ten milligrams per liter or less at a permitted design flow.
The grants are for 80 percent of eligible costs up to a maximum of $7 million.
