What is the CWCB Reservoir Dredging Program?
The Program provides grants for recovery of reservoir storage volume by conducting a dredging construction project.
Who can apply for a Grant?
Eligible entities include water providers such as municipalities, districts, or irrigation companies, and private owners that own or operate a water storage reservoir.
How can the money be used?
Grant funds may be used to conduct a reservoir dredging project. Grant funds may also be used for planning and engineering feasibility studies to address technical needs for dredging projects. If grant funds are used to fund a feasibility study, that feasibility study can be used in a future separate application for CWCB Reservoir Dredging Program grant funding.

- Contact Derek Johnson at CWCB to discuss potential applications: 303-866-3441 x3254.
