The purpose of the District's Conservation Leadership and Innovation Program is to promote, support,
and fund projects that align with our mission and vision. Most
projects funded through the program aim to reduce the impacts of non-point
source pollution, improve the health of our water resources, and/or habitat
The program is funded through the following revenue streams: the Clean Water Fund (CWF) and the District’s general
fund. The CWF monies are collected during the review of applications and issuance
of permits, and/or fines levied against violators of the Clean Streams Law.
Additionally, the District has allocated a portion of funds from our general budget
to support the program.
