Stormwater professionals from across Virginia will spend the day sharing case studies, ideas, and strategies to address urban trash pollution. They will explore ways to prevent litter through community-based social marketing, education, legislation, and innovation. Speakers will share strategies to intercept a piece of trash before it becomes part of stormwater runoff and conveyed to and through the storm sewer system via storm drains. Interception of trash is a sub-set of marine debris prevention, and it has unique features, challenges, and solutions.

This workshop is sponsored by the Virginia Coastal Zone Management Program at VA DEQ. Co-sponsors included Clean Virginia Waterways of Longwood University, NOAA, and Prince William County’s Public Works. The workshop helps address one of the priorities in the VA Marine Debris Reduction Plan.

Registration Fee: $20 will include lunch, morning coffee, and afternoon snacks.
