The Technical Resources Program is a part of the Safe, Clean Water Regional Program providing resources to community groups, municipalities, and individuals who need technical assistance to develop their project concepts.
Each Watershed Area Steering Committee will review projects and concepts submitted in their Watershed Area for funding consideration. Project proponents who are not technically suited to develop a Feasibility Study for their project, may receive support from Technical Assistance Teams, if their project concept is selected for further development.
The Technical Resources Program also provides Watershed Coordinators to educate and build capacity in communities and facilitate community and stakeholder engagement in the Safe, Clean Water Program.
Each Watershed Area Steering Committee will determine how to appropriate funds for the Technical Resources Program.
Technical Assistance Teams
The District will provide Technical Assistance Teams comprised of subject matter experts in Stormwater and/or Urban Runoff infrastructure design, hydrology, soils, Nature-Based Solutions, green infrastructure, Stormwater and/or Urban Runoff quality, water supply, recreation, open space, community needs, and other areas. The Watershed Area Steering Committees will decide which Project concepts will be forwarded to the Technical Assistance Teams for development. The Technical Assistance Teams will complete Feasibility Studies in partnership with and on behalf of Municipalities, CBOs, NGOs, and others who may not have the technical resources or capabilities to develop Feasibility Studies.
The Technical Resources Program funds the development of Project Feasibility Studies. Technical Assistance Teams will work with the necessary parties to add Projects for which there are completed Feasibility Studies to an eligible water quality plan, assist in acquiring a letter of support for non-Municipal Infrastructure Program Project Applicants, and address other prerequisites to apply to the Infrastructure Program. Upon completion, Feasibility Studies shall be submitted to the Watershed Area Steering Committees for consideration.
