CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) - The Nevada Division of Environmental Protection has more than $1 million available in federal grant money for water pollution control projects.

Funding can be used for projects that prevent or control nonpoint source water pollution.

Nonpoint source pollution occurs when rain, snowmelt and irrigation water flows over developed or disturbed land, carrying contaminants that make their way into Nevada waterways either directly or through storm drains.

Officials say nonpoint source pollution remains one of the biggest threats to Nevada waters.

State, local and tribal governments, as well as nonprofit organizations and educational institutions are eligible to apply.

A match of either cash or in-kind contributions totaling at least 50 percent of the total project cost is required.

Proposals will be accepted beginning Friday through Sept. 6.
