The Maine Drain: Stormwater Management Strategies and Solutions

June 12, 2013 - 7:30AM
to 10:00AM

Clarion Hotel
1230 Congress Street
Portland, ME

About the Event:

Maine’s municipal governments are considering new and creative plans to reduce impacts from stormwater runoff, strategies that may involve tens of millions of dollars of public and private money to mitigate and fix problems. Many cities have tackled the low-hanging fruit, such as separating sewage and stormwater pipes while engaged in roadwork. The next phase often includes construction of untreated runoff storage and pollution treatment before sending it on its way to waterways like streams, rivers and the ocean. Reducing the stormwater runoff contamination in the first place will be one of the critical challenges.

Following on a successful and informative breakfast on the topic last year, MEREDA and the Portland Regional Chamber are teaming up with E2Tech on a stormwater forum featuring public works, engineering, regulatory and legal leaders engaged in planning for and funding stormwater plans and implementation. Experts from Maine’s 3 largest cities – Portland, Lewiston and Bangor – will join the Department of Environmental Protection, Woodard & Curran, Pierce Atwood and Perkins Thompson to discuss critical approaches, next steps and options for sound and effective stormwater management.
