CWICNY's NY Realtor Educational Training Program

Real estate agents are in a unique position to educate members of the public, many upon their first arrival to the Lake Champlain Basin and Adirondack Park. CWICNY's NY Realtor Educational Training Program aims at training realtors on the important interactions between the natural world and development, including septic system, wells, floodplains and wetlands, so they can, in turn, educate their clients on making informed decisions for land use planning. This was achieved by developing a 3-hour, NYS DOS approved Watershed Protection Course for Real Estate Professionals. CWICNY partnered with staff from the Chazen Companies, Southern Adirondack Realtors, Northern Adirondack Board of Realtors, and the Clinton County Board of Realtors to bring this training to area realtors, which was funded by the Lake Champlain Basin Program.

2016 North County Stormwater Tradeshow and Conference

The 12th annual North Country Stormwater Tradeshow and Conference was a huge success, with over 100 attendees hailing from Plattsburgh to Albany and 12 product vendors. CWICNY would like to thank everyone who made this event possible. This conference provides the opportunity for design professionals, code enforcement officers and government officials to listen to regional experts in regards to green infrastructure, NYS stormwater regulations and local stormwater improvement projects.

The presentations are here, available for your viewing. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact a CWICNY member for information.

CWICNY Background

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.
