Proceedings: National Conference on Tools for Urban Water Resource Management and Protection


This national conference, co-sponsored by EPA, the Chicago Botanic Garden, and the Northeastern Illinois Planning Commission, was held February 7-10, 2000, in Chicago. A wide array of effective water quality management and protection tools have been developed for urban environments, but implementation has been hindered by a shortage of technology transfer opportunities. This conference was designed to facilitate the transfer of state-of-the-art information to state, regional, and local urban water quality practitioners. A major focus of the conference was to provide practical information on the most effective tools and technologies for meeting new NPDES Phase II permit requirements. Program topics were chosen to reflect the Phase II Program's six priorities, including public education, public involvement, detection and elimination of illicit discharges, construction site runoff control, post-construction stormwater management, and pollution prevention for municipal operations. The proceedings include 46 peer-reviewed papers delivered at the conference.
