CSN and local partners conducted a FREE regional stormwater practitioner forum to meet the unique needs and challenges of communities in the Great Valley of the Bay watershed, which includes portions of WV, VA, MD and PA. Communities in the Great Valley face numerous challenges, including karst terrain, drinking water protection, and limited resources. CSN worked with local sponsors to host the event and showcase NFWF grantees and other who have successfully overcome these challenges.
The one-day meeting was held at Shenandoah University in Winchester, Virginia and provided ample opportunities for feedback from locals and dialog among peers.
Thanks to all of our partners for making this forum a success!
