In October 2019, NEIWPCC hosted a regional water quality standards training for our member states.
The training, held at the request of NEIWPCC’s water quality standards work group, covered important national and regional water quality issues.
In this northeast-specific training, state water quality personnel learned from each other and from regional experts and shared their agencies’ work and experience. Nearly 50 new and veteran staff members from seven state agencies, EPA Region 1, and NEIWPCC participated in the training, either in-person or remotely.
This training will be held again in early 2021, with details available on this page in late 2020. Contact Emma Gildesgame for more information.
Many thanks to 2019 presenters Anna Mayor (MassDEP), Traci Iott (CTDEEP), and Pete LaFlamme (VTDEC)!
The materials and agenda for the Northeast Standards Training were adapted from the EPA’s Water Quality Standards Academy. More information on EPA-hosted training opportunities is available directly from the EPA.
