(This amendment provides funding in the second year for commitments the Commonwealth has previously made for the state share of biological nutrient removal technologies at publicly owned wastewater treatment plants, which are already under construction. The Department of Environmental Quality has signed grant agreements to reimburse local governments and regional authorities for the state's share of the costs of these upgrades necessary to meet water quality goals. The amount of funding is based on DEQ's most recent schedule of when projects will be completed and qualify for state reimbursement.)
