This 3-part webinar series will delve into the EPA regulations that govern watershed protection and the crucial role of stormwater permitting in this regard. The series will also offer an overview of the 9 elements required by the EPA for a watershed protection plan and how they are put into practice.

You will also learn how to identify problematic pollutants in a watershed and how to limit their impact.
Moreover, the series will discuss why watershed protections sometimes fail and how to avoid such pitfalls. Lastly, we will explore the significance of water quality standards and how protecting the watershed can substantially improve the quality of water in a region, state, territory, or tribal land.
