The goal of the Coastal Pollution Remediation (CPR) grant program—which is administered by CZM—is to improve coastal water quality and associated habitats by reducing nonpoint source (NPS) pollution. The nation’s leading cause of water quality problems, NPS pollution occurs when contaminants are picked up by rain water and snowmelt and carried over land or through drainage systems to the nearest water body. Since 1996, more than $9.4 million in CPR grants have been awarded to address NPS pollution problems from cars, trucks, boats, and other transportation sources. Through CPR, CZM has been working closely with coastal communities to: 1) assess and identify sources of NPS pollution from paved surfaces (such as roads and parking lots), 2) design and construct appropriate control methods (also known as Best Management Practices or BMPs), and 3) install commercial boat pumpout facilities for the proper disposal of boat sewage.
CPR funds, combined with in-kind services or monetary match from communities, have created these lasting results:
