NEIWPCC is collecting and producing stories highlighting Clean Water Act 303(d) program successes.

NEIWPCC, together with Flip the Field, will showcase 303(d) program success stories from across the country to inspire other programs, inform stakeholders and the public, and generate support for future work to advance clean water. These stories will cover a diverse array of 303(d) topics across multiple communications products, including the Clean Water Pod podcast, and forthcoming StoryMaps, infographics, and other tools.

A podcast exploring 303(d) program successes

Join host Jeff Berckes to explore challenges and successes of the Clean Water Act 303(d) program in the United States. He will speak with local, state, and federal staff about their work to keep our waterbodies clean. Search for the Clean Water Pod wherever you listen to podcasts.

Call for 303(d) Success Stories

We’re looking to highlight stories from 303(d) programs related to nutrients. The goal is to highlight stories that showcase success in your programs. Success could mean anything from delisting a waterbody to working with a new community or anything in between.

Why Should You Submit?

If your story is chosen, we’ll turn it into at least one communication product that you can share with your stakeholders. Potential communication products include StoryMaps, watershed report cards, videos and more. We’ll work with you to make sure your story is being told in a way that can help your program communicate your successes with your stakeholders. Your story could even end up on the next season of the Clean Water Pod!
