Save the Date(s): RIDOT Linear Stormwater Manual Workshop

The RIDOT Office of Stormwater Management will be holding a workshop November 14th and 15th  from 8-12 to inform you of important features in the RIDOT Linear Stormwater Manual and gather comments on the new RIDOT Linear Stormwater Manual.   We have scheduled 2 identical workshops so that we can keep the groups smaller and give you options for a more convenient date.  You only need to attend one of the workshops. Please feel free to forward this invitation to anyone you think might need it, this is an open workshop.
