The United States EPA requires compliance with the National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) permits specific to local municipalities (MS4s). Applicable to many municipalities nationwide, these permits with their accompanying regulations and mandatory program components are required under the Federal Clean Water Act. Many municipalities are scrambling to figure out how to fund and manage these new permits and what tools can be employed to succeed in accomplishing their rigid standards.

Come and learn from an expert how MS4s are implementing today's technology to properly manage their NPDES programs.

Sustainable? Yes.
Green? You bet.
Emerging Technology? Definitely!
