The 2018 National Nonpoint Source Training Workshop will be held on November 5-8, 2018 in Colorado Springs, Colorado. The workshop will take place at the Antlers Hotel (see location section below for more details). Representatives from regional, state, and tribal NPS programs will be working together over the upcoming months to plan the agenda for this workshop.
This is an important program management/training workshop and your attendance is required to improve the 319 program. Please remember to set aside travel money in FY18 for attending this workshop. Unfortunately, other travel assistance from EPA will generally not be available for this workshop. However, to keep costs low there will not be a registration fee.
This workshop is being funded under a cooperative agreement to NEIWPCC from the U.S. EPA’s Nonpoint Source Control Branch and is also co-sponsored by U.S. EPA Region 8.
A block of rooms has been reserved at the Antlers Hotel in downtown Colorado Springs, CO at the current federal per diem rate of $106.00.
*Please note that the room rates will be based and updated on current per diem rates at the time of the conference. Prevailing government per diem rate for Colorado Springs will be confirmed in August 2018. At that point, the rate will be updated. Any existing reservations will be updated with the confirmed prevailing rate.
