Get the Dirt Out Chesapeake Maryland Training Session


Friday, February 29, 2008

The University of Maryland Environmental Law Clinic and Waterkeepers Chesapeake are hosting a conference on stormwater issues in the Chesapeake Bay Watershed. Stormwater runoff is among the top sources of water pollution in the U.S. and throughout the region.

Inadequate control methods at construction sites are a prime contributor to this problem. This conference will provide Waterkeepers and concerned citizens with the information necessary to engage and solve construction stormwater runoff problems. Experts will explain how to identify and report violations of federal, state and local environmental protection standards and explore the best methods to stop violators. The conference is open to any citizen who is willing to work in partnership with Waterkeepers Chesapeake to improve water quality in the Chesapeake Bay watershed.

Attendance is free, but registration is required. You can register online or by mail.

If you have any questions on the training, please contact Michael Wright at mwrig006@umaryland.edu.

For questions about accommodations, please contact Laura Mrozek at lmrozek@law.umaryland.edu.
