CWICNY would like to thank all of the attendees, participants and individuals who assisted in making this one of the largest North Country Stormwater Tradeshows in recent years! We had over 150 in attendance at the event and great discussion ensued.
The weather was rainy, which made the event very timely and the speakers did an excellent job with the presentations. We have three of the presentations available for your viewing. If you have any questions or comments, please feel free to contact CWCNY President Dave Reckahn at 518.962.8225 or Stormwater Tradeshow Coordinator, Beth Gilles at 518.668.5773.

Recognizing the need for more water quality improvement initiatives on the New York side of Lake Champlain, the five New York counties within the basin formed the Champlain Watershed Improvement Coalition of New York, Inc. (CWICNY). With representatives from the five county Soil and Water Conservation Districts, the five county Water Quality Coordinating Committees, and the Lake Champlain/Lake George Regional Planning Board, CWICNY goes beyond political boundaries and incorporates public sector/private citizen partnerships to complete projects good for the watershed as a whole.
