Strategies for Implementation Using Integrated Watershed Planning

May 22, 2006
Westin Convention Center
Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania

The Water Environment Federation (WEF) and the U.S. Environmental
Protection Agency have cooperated on the development of a technical
training program for those involved in the design, review, and
implementation of watershed-based plans in support of activities funded
under Section 319 of the Clean Water Act.  As part of this effort, WEF's
Watershed Training Task Force has developed a workshop entitled
"Strategies for Implementation Using Integrated Watershed Planning."
The workshop addresses integrated watershed management basics,
preparation of watershed protection and restoration plans, goal setting
and measuring success, and low-impact development.  Detailed integrated
watershed management case studies from North Carolina, Philadelphia, and
Maryland will be presented.

The audience includes State and Tribal officials involved in the
management of Section 319 funds (i.e., grantors), the recipients of
these funds (i.e., grantees), and grantee contractors.  The goal of this
program is to maximize the effectiveness of watershed-based plans by
helping grantees develop and implement projects that have quantifiable
and measurable objectives.

The workshop is being offered at no cost and attendance will be limited
to 40 participants.  To register and for hotel information, please

The workshop will be conducted the day before EPA/USDA's "2nd National
Water Quality Trading Conference."  Although the workshop is not part of
the conference, workshop attendees are encouraged to consider attending
both events as a way to leverage their travel/training funds.  For more
