Apart from NEIWPCC’s Executive Committee and Commissioner meetings, no single part of our work embodies better a mission of regional collaboration and state-federal engagement than the NEIWPCC workgroups.

These groups are organized around such critical topics as contaminants of emerging concern, wetlands, and groundwater and source water protection.

At meetings, typically twice annually, the state-agency staff members who are tasked with these issues sit down with their peers from other states in the region and with federal officials, NEIWPCC staff members, and other practitioners to grapple with the ongoing and latest issues and trends in the field.
