NEIWPCC provides administrative, program, and budgetary support to some of these place-based programs. Key initiatives include monitoring, research, and education and outreach. While the work may focus on a single geographic area, the lessons learned can be applied in future projects and contribute to our overall understanding of water pollution control and watershed management.
Another important way in which NEIWPCC assists our member states is by providing staff who work directly with state agencies. In doing so, we provide the specific skills and expertise that the states require to achieve their water-related priorities.
