The National Stormwater Advocacy Network (NSAN) is a coalition of state and regional stormwater groups that provides a forum to coordinate advocacy activities and regularly exchange information, network, and receive timely and concise updates on federal policy activities. Convened by NACWA, the NSAN was formed in 2015 based on a desire of state and regional stormwater groups to provide feedback on, and ultimately influence, national policy-making around stormwater issues.
The NSAN provides peer-to-peer interaction and builds on the advocacy work that state and regional stormwater water groups are already doing at the state and local level. The NSAN allows for broad engagement by the sector on advocacy issues and collaborates closely with NACWA's Stormwater Management Committee to help shape policies in Congress, at EPA and other state, regional and federal agencies, and in the Nation’s courtrooms.
Participation in the NSAN is free, and benefits include quarterly conference calls with NSAN and NACWA members, regular electronic updates with information on regulatory, legal, and legislative issues impacting municipal stormwater agencies, and the opportunity to join the collaborative efforts of NACWA on key municipal stormwater advocacy priorities.
