The US Environmental Protection Agency Office of Water has partnered with the Environmental Finance Center at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and the Environmental Finance Center at the University of Maryland to support integrated planning for municipal stormwater and wastewater. As part of this partnership, the UNC EFC and the UMD EFC offered technical assistance to workshop the integrated planning process and get municipalities and state permitting authorities strarted. In total, EFC assisted nine local governments, six state permitting authorities, one council of government, two non-profits, and two watershed-based groups.
Below are a list of resources and recordings of webinars and workshops from the two year project.
