The California Boating and Waterways Commission recently approved $782,000 in boat launch and facility improvement grants.

Awarded by the commission last week, the grants will go toward the construction of three Northern California boat-launch facilities:

• Miller Park, Tomales Bay, Marin County, $403,000

• Black Point, Petaluma River, Marin County, $279,000

• El Dorado Beach, Lake Tahoe, City of South Lake Tahoe, $100,000

Funding for approved projects is derived from the taxes paid by boaters on the purchase of vessel gasoline and the repayment of principal and interest on department-made loans.
