Join the Policy Working Group

The Policy Working Group is recruiting!

Our first order of business obviously is discussing the merits of Impaired Waterway Status (303d) when the list opens again next year. Here’s a DEC link on the subject:

Another obvious role might be to compile/write “best practices” laws for our local government allies to take up. Some examples might include:
Wetlands Protection
Riparian Buffer requirements
Septic Tank Inspections
Secondary sewer treatment levels
Establishing Critical Environmental Areas
Subsidies for farmers to plant buffers

Policy and regs is a broad area, so there are lots of other ways we could make best use of local, county, state and federal regulations.

So who’s in?
