Join us at the 2023 Annual Nonpoint Source Conference, set for April 12-13 in Saratoga Springs, New York!

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.

Call for Abstracts now Extended Until December 8th!

The call for abstracts for the 33rd Annual Nonpoint Source Pollution (NPS) Conference is now open. Submissions are invited from NPS managers at the state, federal, and municipal level, as well as from the private sector, watershed organizations, Tribes & Nations, and academia.


NEIWPCC is committed to providing an event that keeps all participants as safe as possible and promotes the well-being of our community. NEIWPCC requires all individuals who participate in the Annual NPS Conference to be fully vaccinated to attend.

  • Following the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC’s) guidance, people are considered “fully vaccinated” either 2 weeks after they receive their second dose in a 2-dose series, such as the Pfizer or Moderna vaccines, or 2 weeks after they receive their single-dose vaccine, such as Johnson & Johnson’s Janssen vaccine.
  • As new guidance regarding vaccine recommendations is updated by the CDC to include booster doses in the future, participants may be required to provide proof they have received such doses.

In addition, all attendees must adhere to all NPS Conference safety measures. The NPS Conference will operate according to the prevailing federal, state, county, and city laws, regulations, recommendations, and guidelines, as well as venue-specific regulations for the Woodstock Inn, as they are in effect over the NPS Conference dates (including but not limited to face mask requirements, social distancing, etc.).

To ensure safety, we will not be accepting on-site registrations.

We will continue to revise our procedures as needed to reflect the current state of the pandemic.
