Maine Stormwater Conference

Cumberland SWCD
South Portland, ME

The Think Blue Maine Partners are proud to announce our first ever Maine Stormwater Conference. This conference focuses on real-world strategies for protecting and restoring water resources.

Stormwater is the greatest threat to Maine's rivers, streams, lakes, and bays. As such, dealing with stormwater runoff should play a central role in local and regional land use planning and project permitting.

Many communities in Maine and around the Northeast have taken proactive steps to protect their water resources, and others are faced with cleaning up waters that do not meet state water quality standards.

This conference will showcase effective planning, design, maintenance, and funding approaches to address water quality needs. The conference will also highlight the use of Residual Designation Authority (RDA), the development and potential implications of TMDLs, and federal stormwater rules.
