30935.  (a) The board may award grants under this article to local
public agencies and nonprofit organizations for projects that protect
the beneficial uses of water throughout the state through the
control of nonpoint source pollution.
   (b) Except as authorized under subdivision (g), grants may be
awarded only for projects that are one or more of the following:
   (1) Consistent with local watershed management plans and with
regional water quality control plans.
   (2) Broad-based nonpoint source pollution projects, including, but
not limited to, projects identified in the board's "Initiatives in
NPS Management," dated September 1995, and in the nonpoint source
technical advisory committee reports.
   (3) Consistent with the "Integrated Plan for Implementation of the
Watershed Management Initiative" prepared by the board and the
regional boards.
   (4) A project that implements watershed best management practices
and measures.
   (5) Consistent with the requirements of Section 6217(g) of the
federal Coastal Zone Act Reauthorization Amendments of 1990 and has
been identified as a needed project by the board under the 15-year
implementation strategy and five-year implementation plan of the
board's nonpoint source pollution control program.
   (6) A project that improves the quality of drinking water supplies
and addresses contamination by pathogens, organic carbon, or
salinity.
   (c) Projects funded under this article shall demonstrate a
capability of sustaining water quality benefits for a period of not
less than 20 years. Categories of nonpoint source pollution addressed
by projects may include, but need not be limited to, silviculture,
agriculture, urban runoff, mining, hydromodification, grazing, onsite
disposal systems, boatyards and marinas, and animal feeding
operations.
   (d) Projects to address nonpoint source pollution may include, but
need not be limited to, wildfire management, installation of
vegetative systems to filter or retard pollutant loading, incentive
programs or large-scale demonstration programs to reduce commercial
reliance on polluting substances or to increase acceptance of
alternative methods and materials, and engineered features to
minimize impacts of nonpoint source pollution.
   (e) Projects funded under this article shall have defined water
quality or beneficial use goals.
   (f) A local public agency or nonprofit organization that has a
project funded under this article shall submit to the board a
monitoring and reporting plan that does all of the following:
   (1) Identifies one or more nonpoint sources of pollution.
   (2) Describes the baseline water quality of the body of water
impacted.
   (3) Describes the manner in which the proposed practices or
measures are implemented.
   (4) Determines the effectiveness of the proposed practices or
measures in preventing or reducing pollution.
   (g) Notwithstanding subdivision (b), the board may award grants
for demonstration projects that are intended to prevent, reduce, or
treat nonpoint source pollution.
   (h) A grant recipient shall submit a report to the board, upon
completion of the project, that summarizes completed activities and
indicates whether the purposes of the project have been met. The
report shall include information collected by the grant recipient in
accordance with the project monitoring and reporting plan, including,
but not limited to, a determination of the effectiveness of the best
management practices or management measures implemented as part of
the project in preventing or reducing nonpoint source pollution. The
board shall make the report available to watershed groups, and
federal, state, and local agencies.
