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.
