The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) webcast “Conducting Effective Stormwater Outreach” is now archived and available for free. The webcast features EPA’s Nonpoint Source Outreach Toolbox and ThinkBlueMaine’s rubber duck campaign.
The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) also has posted video footage of a recent congressional briefing on the SPARROW model. At the briefing, USGS discussed a new online decision support system for identifying nutrient sources to downstream waters. The tool gives decision-makers a way to evaluate nutrient reduction scenarios based on a variety of sources from agriculture to wastewater treatment plants.
