Release Date: 11/07/2002

(11/07/02) EPA is accepting proposals from U.S. universities, non-profit institutions and state or local governments for research to classify
watersheds. Each research grant will be funded for up to $300,000 per year for a total of three years through the Science to Achieve
Results program. These grants will be used to design water monitoring programs, prioritize impaired watersheds for restoration and
diagnose losses in their variety of marine organisms (biodiversity). The classification systems should be applicable to a wide variety
of watersheds in different parts of the country, so that state and local agencies can use the systems for risk prevention, watershed
management and tracking of specific pollutants. The deadline for submitting proposals for these research grants is Jan. 29, 2003. For
more information on this call for proposals, see: http://es.epa.gov/ncer/rfa/current/2003wshedclass.html.
