RECOMMENDATION
Discuss and consider acceptance of a grant award from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service for the Upper Oso Creek Water Quality Improvement Project, as part of the Coastal Impact Assistance Program (CIAP) grant program.
BACKGROUND
The Coastal Impact Assistance Program (CIAP) is intended to assist coastal states and coastal political subdivisions within those states that have either supported or been impacted in some measure, directly or indirectly, from Outer Continental Shelf (OCS) oil and gas exploration and development activities. CIAP is funded with federal royalties generated from offshore oil and gas leases. The CIAP program was authorized by the Energy Policy Act of 2005. Two hundred and fifty million dollars will be divided annually from fiscal years 2007 through 2010 among the coastal states of Alabama, Alaska, California, Louisiana, Mississippi and Texas.
DISCUSSION
The goal of the Upper Oso Creek Water Quality Improvement project is to redesign an existing 2.34-acre detention pond and incorporate a public education component. The project will improve the water quality in the Oso Creek watershed and will include the design and maintenance of wetlands as part of the water quality program affecting Oso Bay.

The total amount of the grant award is $330,309 and there is no match required. This project was included as part of the 2008 CIAP grant allocation projects.  The grant period will be October 1, 2012 to September 30, 2014.
