If you are familiar with the term MS4 (Municipal Separate Storm Sewers), then this webinar is for you! We will take a look at stormwater regulations for MS4s and showcase how you can provide valuable services and outputs that help insure a sincere and lasting relationship with your city partners. We will showcase three programs that are in service with eleven municipalities in central Indiana under the guidance of our regional watershed alliance. Programs include public outreach and education, technical trainings and certifications, and strategic professional-level water monitoring. These programs are helping meet state and federal permit requirements (MCMs 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5), as well as unifying messages and training/certification opportunities across communities. Target audiences for our programs include developers, builders, contractors, homeowner associations, landscape maintenance companies, utilities, municipal leadership, and the general public. These programs ensure that our Alliance is routinely engaged in municipal stormwater, development, and landscape-planning initiatives. The program models (and in some cases the actual program materials) are transferable to any MS4 community.

Join us to learn how to develop programs that raise your organization’s reputation and make you an invaluable resource to your city! This is Part 2 of a 2-part webinar on White River Alliance programs dedicated to meeting MS4 permit requirements.
