A series of three meetings entitled, “Watershed Working Lands Summit: Better Water Quality Through Better Government Collaboration” will be held in the Summer and Fall of 2004. These meetings will involve water quality and other natural resource agency leaders (EPA, USDA, DOI, etc.) at the Federal, State, and local levels, together with appropriate participation by regional and national headquarters staff. The first summit will occur in St. Louis, Missouri on June 22–24, 2004. Subsequent summits are scheduled for Sacramento, California on October 26-28, and Baltimore, Maryland on November 8-10.
The summits will focus on leadership principles, concepts and practices necessary for collaborative decision-making at the state level by Federal and State agencies, and subunits of state government.
Putting the LID on Stormwater Management (September 21-23, 2004)
US EPA Region III and a number of co-sponsors will host a national Low Impact Development (LID) and Watershed Management Conference in order to continue to promote the use of LID as an effective alternative for traditional stormwater management, as well as to examine successful watershed management practices related to stream restoration. The primary purpose of the conference will be to inform practitioners throughout the country of the benefits of LID approaches and how to anticipate and address the real impediments for implementation of these techniques to accelerate change in state and local practices in stormwater management. All abstracts from potential presenters must be received by November 30, 2003.
This workshop at the Princess Royal Oceanfront Hotel & Conference Center in Ocean City, Maryland will bring together land managers and water quality specialists to share information on the effectiveness of best management practices in improving water quality, effective monitoring techniques, and statistical analysis of watershed data. The workshop will focus on the successes of Section 319 National Monitoring Program projects and other innovative projects from throughout the United States. The agenda will include three days of sessions, posters presentations and a field trip. Plus, two half-day workshops will focus on Project Evaluation and Nonpoint Source Modeling.
