The Vermont Planners Association will present Water Works, a summary of current water quality issues, innovation in planning, and best practices on Friday, December 11, 2015, at the St. Albans Historical Society in St. Albans, Vermont. The day-long conference will focus on big-picture water quality planning in the morning and best practices in the afternoon. Big picture planning will include presentations on more rural watershed-based clean water initiatives as well as a more urban holistic water quality plan. An update will be provided on current watershed planning efforts the state has initiated with regional planning commissions. The VPA annual meeting will occur prior to lunch to facilitate the election of officers to update membership on the implementation of the Strategic Plan. A briefing on Act 64 and the state’s efforts to date will follow lunch (provided). The remainder of the afternoon will focus on best practices for improving water quality and will include low impact development standards, green infrastructure, and stormwater utilities. Lessons learned from different implementation techniques will be shared and a walking tour of green infrastructure will be provided.

 

The conference fee is $45 ($25 for students or retirees). A link to the conference agenda and to register is here.
