Great Lakes Nonpoint Source Pollution from Land Use Workshop: A Post-PLUARG Review

November 8-9, Ann Arbor, Michigan

This two-day workshop is designed for public agency officials, researchers, natural resource managers, and non-governmental representatives involved with nonpoint source and land use issues to assess the current state of nonpoint source pollution control in the Great Lakes region.  This workshop will outline important steps for advancing a regional agenda for land use management and nonpoint source pollution control and explore how such an agenda can support broader Great Lakes restoration activities. 

Leading experts will review progress in addressing nonpoint source pollution since the completion of the Pollution from Land Use Activities Reference Group (PLUARG) reports in the 1970s. Workshop participants will identify needs and emerging issues and develop recommendations for future land use management and non-point source pollution control through a series of discussion and breakout sessions. 

The deadline for registration is November 1, 2004. Registration information is available online at:
http://www.glc.org/postpluarg.   Space is limited, so please register early to ensure your opportunity to participate.  There is a $60 (U.S.) or $ 75 (CDN) registration fee for the workshop, which includes workshop materials, meals, breaks, and a reception. Information about the workshop is available online at www.glc.org/postpluarg.

This workshop is being funded in part by U.S. EPA GLNPO with additional support provided by USDA-NRCS and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.  Staff support is being provided  by the Great Lakes Commission.  Thank you for your interest and we look forward to seeing you at the workshop!
