As previously announced by the Maryland Department of the Environment, a series of regional WIP workshops is scheduled for November 2014. The workshops will cover progress made by Maryland and neighboring states, Milestone Evaluations (both State and local), what’s new on Tracking and Reporting, the latest on nutrient Trading to offset new loads and to accelerate reductions, Key Dates (Schedules), Urban Nutrient Management, and updates on topics like the licensing of Conowingo Dam, and the Phosphorus Management Tool regulations. In addition, there will be a session on funding opportunities which describe how different grants are designed to be mutually supportive as well as examples of projects that have been implemented using these funding sources.  The workshop will also include a session highlighting counties’ innovative uses of monies collected from their stormwater fees as well as other projects that have been implemented by the counties and municipalities to move their work forward.

The workshops are being sponsored by the Harry R. Hughes Center for Agro-Ecology of the University of Maryland and funded by the Town Creek Foundation so there is no cost to you to participate. The dates and locations for the workshops are listed below. The doors will open at 9:15 am with the meeting hours beginning at 10:00 am and concluding by 3:30 PM. Continental breakfast and lunch will be served. We hope that you will be able to attend the event in your area.
