CGMC to host webinar on solutions to environmental challenges facing Greater MN cities

The CGMC is hosting a free webinar on Thursday, Sept. 8 to provide information about the challenges Greater Minnesota cities face in regards to water quality regulations and to discuss strategies to help cities address these challenges. The interactive webinar is geared toward policy makers, city managers/administrators, public works/public utilities directors and other city officials. The focus of the webinar is to inform cities about how to proactively respond to the current/pending water quality regulations that have the potential to seriously impact city finances, ratepayers, future economic and social development and the environment.

The presentation will cover the following topics:

– A brief overview of the regulatory history
– Discussion of the current pending regulations and cost implications (capital and operations) that your city should be prepared for
– A presentation on cities’ legal rights with respect to wastewater permitting
– Discussion of the CGMC Environmental Action Fund priorities and agenda
