The Watershed Institute welcomes you to our Sixth Annual Watershed Conference on February 10, 2023 and February 17, 2023 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. The two-day event will be held in-person at The Watershed Institute with the option to attend virtually.
Most waterways in New Jersey are impaired due to polluted stormwater runoff from overdevelopment. Previous efforts to tackle these issues largely focused on municipalities working separately from one other, however water does not confine itself to political boundaries. Municipal leaders, engineers, watershed advocates, and community members must work together across municipal boundaries, in a regional approach, to repair our degraded waterways, a problem worsened by the impacts of climate change with more intense and frequent storms.
At the conference, learn about new Municipal Separate Storm Sewer System (MS4) requirements and solutions that go beyond the proposed minimum standards. We will explore existing tools and learn how to engage our communities through roundtable discussions and interactive sessions. Three conference tracks will be offered to present the most relevant information for municipal representatives, engineers and stormwater implementation professionals, and the general public. Together, we can use the new MS4 requirements as an opportunity to advocate for local and regional solutions that restore our waterways.
