Partner Meetings

CWMP hosts four public meetings for our watershed partners and other interested parties. We bring together municipal officials, practitioners, scientists, regulators, and interested members of the public to discuss current matters in stormwater management in the Christina Basin watersheds of Chester County.

Periodically we will host a meeting with a special agenda or specific audience. For instance, about once a year we plan to have a breakfast meeting for local elected officials to bring them up to speed on what is happening in the world of water and stormwater management.

In addition to meetings, CWMP hosts several workshops each year, with the focus on applied techniques and technical support for stormwater implementation projects and watershed protection. Workshops will include topics such as green infrastructure installation, HOA issues, Operation and Maintenance, grant and funding resources, among many others. If you are interested in particular topics, please let us know!
