AQUATIC RESOURCES WORKSHOPS
In 2010, CTIC received a grant from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to fund the "Aquatic Resource Monitoring Technical Training Workshops for States, Tribes and Other Stakeholders" project. Over the next three years, CTIC will provide the leadership and technical support to conduct seven aquatic resource-specific workshops and two national conferences covering all aquatics resource types. These workshops and conferences will enhance the collaboration, communication, coordination and technology transfer among over 800 professional attendees. Using a national network of conservation and agricultural leaders, CTIC will assist EPA, states and tribes in strengthening partnerships with agricultural communities to address nonpoint source pollution.
U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)
CTIC is forming an advisory committee consisting of National Aquatic Resource Survey experts and individuals from university, research, nonprofit organizations and EPA headquarters and regional offices. The advisory committee will assist in developing a survey requesting targeted audiences to rank technical and programmatic issues in order of greatest training needs. CTIC will use this information to develop topics for the national conference. CTIC is also working with EPA specialists to conduct a wetlands training workshop in October 2010 and a lakes workshop for the first week of November.
