Eastern Shore BMP Inspection and Maintenance Workshops

On October 5 and 19 the Chesapeake Stormwater Network in partnership with the Chesapeake Bay Foundation and the Healthy Waters Round Table offered two ½-day workshops on Inspection, Maintenance and Retrofits geared toward managers, planners and field operators on the Eastern Shore of Maryland. Both workshops covered the same technical content but were offered at two different locations to address the geographic limitations and time constraints of our workshop participants. The resources from the workshops can be downloaded below.
