Sweetwater Authority (Authority) presented a $5,000 award check to the Living Coast Discovery Center (Living Coast) at its June 13 Board meeting as part of the Authority’s Water Efficiency Education Program (WEEP) grant program.
The Living Coast’s grant award helped fund a series of three events highlighting both organizations’ mutual goal of educating the public about water conservation. In addition to these planned event activities, the grant also provided watershed demonstrations and curriculum on water efficiency.
Along with funding rebates and free residential water audits for customers and businesses, the Authority offers grant funding as part of its commitment to water efficiency. The WEEP Grant is a program designed to encourage water users in the Authority’s service area to implement educational displays, programs, lectures or instructional media to teach the importance and relevance of water resource efficiency and education.
