Minnesota Pollution Control Agency
Oct 13, 2023

The Minnesota Pollution Control Agency will provide funding for a single technical assistance (TA) provider to work with small, rural, and tribal publicly owned treatment works (POTWs) to develop asset management plans and provide wastewater National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES/SDS) assistance.

The TA provider will:

  • Perform asset management activities for POTWs. Work onsite to gather historical information, fill in the gaps where there is missing information, and produce a list (or database) of a system's complete assets. Some POTWs may use this information to input into a GIS system. POTWs that have or are developing a drinking water asset management system through the Minnesota Department of Health's set-aside program will be prioritized and coordinated, if possible.
  • Provide NPDES/SDS permit technical assistance to evaluate small, rural, and tribal POTWs; identify wastewater solutions; and help with source identification and reduction work

Eligible applicants include nonprofit organizations incorporated in Minnesota that are qualified and experienced in and have the equipment, vehicles, and resources for providing on-site training and technical assistance to rural, small, and tribal municipalities and/or small publicly owned treatment works.

The intent is to award funding to one grantee. If multiple organizations work together, there must be one applicant of record.
