The Water Environment Research Foundation (WERF; Alexandria, Va.) has partnered with the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation (NFWF) to reduce sediment and nutrient delivery to the Chesapeake Bay. With a 6-year grant from the NFWF, WERF will coordinate studies on nutrient and sediment reduction, program management, source controls, monitoring, and receiving water effects. This will compliment WERF’s ongoing research on stormwater best management practices, and the partnership will utilize WERF’s International Stormwater BMP Database. In addition, WERF will organize a stormwater symposium in 2011 to highlight case studies. Check here for more information.
