National Stormwater Advocacy Network Discusses Long-Term Planning with EPA

eightNACWA hosted the first quarterly National Stormwater Advocacy Network (NSAN) conference call of 2017 to discuss EPA’s draft Community Solutions for Stormwater Management: Guide for Voluntary Long-Term Planning. A variety of state and regional stormwater groups from around the country participated in the March 15 call and asked the EPA thoughtful questions, as well as offered productive feedback on the draft.\

The call also featured a follow-up of the Phase II Remand Rule discussions from NACWA’s 2017 Winter Conference. NACWA encourages members and NSAN participants interested in EPA’s Long-term Stormwater Planning Guide to submit suggestions and/or comments to Emily Remmel before March 30.

NACWA plans to submit comments to EPA by the end of March.

NSAN is convened by NACWA and 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.  For more information on the NSAN, please contact Emily Remmel
