This EBC Water Resources webinar uses the backdrop of the Mystic River Watershed as a canvas to explore critical issues in surface water quality and stormwater management. The program will focus on deliberate planning efforts that were developed from close data analysis to drive infrastructure improvements that reduce flooding impacts and improve climate resiliency. We will look at the recent decision to craft an Alternative TMDL for the watershed, analyze in-land and coastal dimensions of watershed management issues, and assess regional strategies for mitigating stormwater impacts.
Final Agenda – Water Resources Webinar – Into the Mystic – Stormwater
A robust panel discussion with the audience will conclude the webinar.
General Continuing Education Certificates are awarded by the EBC for this program (2.5 training contact hours). Certificates are automatically provided via email link for registered attendees at the conclusion of the webinar.
