Have Ideas or a Showcase Project? 

One of the strongest aspects of the seminar and the technical workshops we host each year is that we pull the majority of the presentations from projects completed in our region. Contact us if you have a great program in your community or have designed or implemented a successful stormwater management project – we want to showcase your successes, and others want to learn from your mistakes or use your experience to make their project work better.  And don’t forget – stormwater does not just happen in the summer: the way we manage our snow clearing operations is equally important to the health of our water resources.
