VEC 2nd Annual Water Quality Conference: Stormwater
March 14, 2013 @ 8:00 am - 3:30 pm
This year’s conference is focused on changes in stormwater management affecting Vermont’s cities & towns. Stormwater runoff is Vermont’s most common cause of water pollution. Rainwater and snowmelt run off streets, lawns, farms, and construction and industrial sites where it picks up fertilizers, dirt, pesticides, oil and grease, and many other pollutants on the way to our streams, rivers, and lakes.
Please join the Vermont Environmental Consortium, Burlington Mayor Miro Weinberger, Commissioner of Environmental Conservation David Mears, municipal leaders, environmental advocates and technical experts to discuss strategies for minimizing the impacts of stormwater runoff, and how these strategies are currently being implemented in Vermont.
Presentation topics include Water Quality Remediation, Implementation, and Funding: The Act 138 Report, General Permit for Small Municipal Separate Storm Sewer Systems (MS4): Its Implementation, Stormwater Management in Vermont’s Non-MS4 communities, Making Green Infrastructure and Low Impact Development Commonplace, and How can WE more effectively manage Stormwater in Vermont? There will be time for networking with other conference attendees.
