The Clean Water Council’s Biennial Report includes budget recommendations for the Legislature and the Governor on how Clean Water Fund dollars should be appropriated, policies for clean water, and progress on Clean Water Fund activities. The Council’s FY 22-23 Clean Water Fund recommendations total $220,247,000.
