Training Sessions for DPWThe Quinnipiac River Watershed Association (QRWA) is pleased to announce the first in a series of educational meetings for Department of Public Works (DPW) employees in communities along the Quinnipiac River. These meetings are funded through a grant from the Greater New Haven Green Fund, whose mission is to support initiatives that help reduce exposure to air, water, and land pollution, and contribute to a more sustainable future.
Working in cooperation with the Department of Energy and Environmental Protection (DEEP) the QRWA organized ‘lunch and learn’ sessions with the North Haven DWP and Wallingford Public Works. DEEP speakers focused on an overview of the various stormwater permits and minimum measures for low impact development, followed by a brief Q& A.
Public Works departments are working hard to educate homeowners about how much they can impact the environment and is encouraging homeowners to clear the storm drains of leaves and debris that blocks runoff water and can create localized flooding.
These meetings give the QRWA, DEEP and Public Works an opportunity to learn about topics that directly affect the work of the DPW, hear about upcoming issues and to meet face-to-face.
The QRW would like to thank Lynn Sadosky, Director of the North Haven DPW, Randy Snow, Chris Stone, Chris Malik and MaryAnn Nusom Haverstock of the DEEP , Mary Heffernon, Wallingford Conservation for their support and coordination of these training session. Funding made possible through the Greater New Haven Green Fund. Thank you for this educational opportunity.
