Overview: Stormwater runoff poses a significant threat to Vermont’s waterways from both a water quantity and water quality standpoint. The sheer magnitude of stormwater related issues throughout the state requires a certain level of regulatory control. But regulation alone will only get us so far.  Education, outreach, technical assistance, financial incentives, and voluntary implementation are also needed. Luckily, local organizations are making a concerted effort to provide these services to citizens and communities alike. In this webinar, we’ll hear from some of the people and organizations who are pushing for better stormwater management at the local level. Presenters will highlight successful projects and initiatives, discuss challenges, and answer questions from the audience. Take advantage of this opportunity to learn about some great programs and initiatives being undertaken at the local level.
