Prev Article 33. - WATER POLLUTION CONTROLNext


65-3301.Statement of purpose. Because the pollution of waters constitutes a menace to public health, creates public nuisances, is harmful to wildlife, fish and aquatic life, and impairs domestic, agricultural, industrial, recreational and other legitimate beneficial uses of water; and since federal legislation provides incentives for state financial participation in the construction of public water pollution control facilities by increasing the portion of federal aid contributed when the state also participates; the legislature hereby determines that it is essential for the public health, safety and welfare of the state and the residents thereof and advantageous to state and local government taxpayers to undertake a program to financially assist the construction of public facilities to abate and prevent the pollution of water, such program to be undertaken as a cooperative partnership with municipalities and with the United States government and agencies thereof.
