Returning as an in-person event after being held virtually due to the pandemic, the 32nd Annual Nonpoint Source (NPS) Conference was held April 27-28 in Woodstock, Vermont. Acting as a regional forum to share information on NPS pollution issues, research and related projects, the event drew more than 100 environmental professionals from the private and nonprofit sectors, and state and federal agencies.

Since 1990, NEIWPCC, in partnership with its member states, has been coordinating the Annual Nonpoint Source (NPS) Conference. The Annual NPS Conference is the premier forum in the Northeast for sharing information and improving communication on NPS pollution issues and projects.
The conference theme in 2022 was “Clean Water Act: Past and Future” to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Clean Water Act in 2022. Sessions included financing NPS projects, partnership building and community engagement, structural and non-structural BMPs, and other pivotal topics for the Northeast region and NPS community. For more specific information on our sessions, you can reference the Conference Agenda (download) and the presentation Abstracts Packet 2022. If you would like to review the presentation materials, please contact Lynn Porta.
