(ATLANTA – August 30, 2007) The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency
(EPA) Region 4 has awarded 5 grants totaling approximately $94,000. The
grants are awarded to support projects that enhance the public’s
awareness and knowledge of environmental issues, provide them with
skills to make informed decisions, and to take responsible actions to
protect the environment.

The 2007 grant recipients are:


MountainKeepers, Boone, N.C.

Due to increasing concerns about regional water conditions, the
MountainKeepers were prompted to host an environmental summit in 2005.
This summit resulted in a project with a purpose to, 1) educate
communities about the science behind the region's water supply and 2)
identify water-related efforts within communities to facilitate linkages
among various communities that will lead to improved environmental
conditions. As university ambassadors, student interns will work with
MountainKeepers and subject matter experts to develop science-based
materials and use these to increase the knowledge level about water
among the region's residents and begin a dialogue about improving water
