Stormwater is the greatest threat to Maine’s rivers, streams, lakes, and bays. Many communities in Maine and around New England have found that collaborating with public and private entities has helped them make strides in their efforts to protect and restore water resources. This conference showcases effective planning, design, maintenance, and funding approaches to address stormwater runoff quantity and quality and habitat challenges. The 2017 conference will have a focus on collaboration and partnerships that help municipalities and other groups achieve their clean water goals.
The 2017 Conference will feature:
- Relevant, real-world examples of innovative stormwater management.
- Topics applicable to decision makers and practitioners, alike.
- A trade show of vendors to provide stormwater solutions.
- An opportunity to connect with professionals from around the region.
- Envirocert courses and exams.
- A Craft Brewery and Green Infrastructure tour.
- PDHs for engineers, planners, lawyers, and more.
