About this grant

The southeastern United States is home to a diverse array of water resources that provide critical habitat for a wide range of aquatic life. Polluted stormwater runoff, coupled with significant wetlands loss, is threatening the region’s rivers, streams, lakes, and coasts, as well as the wildlife and people depending on them. The Southern Environmental Law Center brings extensive technical, policy, and scientific expertise to bear on critically important water quality issues. With a one-year renewal grant from Mott, the center will work to strengthen stormwater controls, enhance water quality protections, and conserve wetlands throughout the Southeast.
