   Secretary Salazar Announces Boating Grants to 28 States to Help Keep
                              Waterways Clean


Department of the Interior Secretary Ken Salazar today announced that
$14.6
million will be awarded to 28 states under the Clean Vessel Act grant
program in 2009. The grants will be used to fund the construction and
installation of sewage pumpout facilities and floating restrooms, to
purchase pumpout boats and provide educational programs for recreational
boaters.

"Clean Vessel Act funds support construction of facilities in
communities
that depend on recreational boating for their economy, and depend on
clean
water for their health," said Salazar. "These grants provide immediate
funding for construction of infrastructure that will provide lasting
value
for recreational boaters, and everyone who relies on clean waters."

Since the program's inception in the early 1990s, the program -
administered by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service - has awarded more
than
$163 million to states to install thousands of sewage pumpout stations.
In
addition, many states now rely upon mobile sewage pumpout boats to make
the
sewage collection process more efficient and convenient. A number of
states
also have begun installing floating restrooms and pumpout stations in
high
use areas of lakes and coastal waters.

Funding for the CVA program comes from the Sport Fishing and Boating
Trust
Fund, formerly known as the Aquatic Resources Trust Fund, which is
supported by excise taxes levied on certain fishing and boating
equipment
and boat fuels.

"These Clean Vessel Act grants will help the states maintain clean and
healthy waters for people and wildlife," said U.S. Fish and Wildlife
Service Acting Director Rowan Gould. "Sewage pumpouts may not be the
most
glamorous conservation tool, but their presence can have an immediate
and
clear impact on the well-being of aquatic resources and recreational
waterways that provide drinking water to millions of Americans."
