“Friends of the Lake” (FOTL) cordially invites you to attend an educational presentation, “Linking Land Use to Water Quality.” The purpose of the presentation is to help municipal land use committees with decisions that impact the water quality of our streams, rivers and lakes.
Dr. Michael Dietz, Program Director of CT NEMO (Nonpoint Education for Municipal Officials) will be our guest speaker. Dr. Dietz’s presentation will also include ‘Low Impact Development Tools’ that can be used by everyone during the decision making processes. Mike is a water resources educator, with primary responsibilities for running the CT NEMO Program. Mike’s position is jointly held between the Center for Land Use Education and Research (CLEAR) and the Connecticut Sea Grant College Program at the Avery Point campus of the University of Connecticut. He received both his Masters and Ph.D. from the University of Connecticut, focusing on stormwater and low impact development (LID) techniques.
Our presentation will be held at the Western Connecticut State University (WSCU) Science Building, Room SB125, on April 12, 2012 at 7PM. The Science Building is located at the corner of Dr. James Roach Avenue and Osborne Street in Danbury, CT. Parking is available in the parking garage with entrances located on Osborne Street and Fifth Avenue. Handicapped parking is available on Dr. James Roach Avenue. The presentation will last approximately one hour, with a question and answer session and light refreshments following.
FOTL, in partnership with NEMO and WSCU, is offering this education session to help us all reach our goals of protecting our natural resources, including Lake Lillinonah.
NEMO was created in the early 1990’s to provide information, education and assistance to local land use boards and commissions on how they can accommodate growth while protecting their natural resources and community character. The program was built upon the basic belief that the future of our communities and environment depend on land use, and, since land use is decided primarily at the local level, education of local land use officials is the most effective, and most cost-effective, way to bring about positive change. This information and addition course offerings are located at their website: nemo.uconn.edu.
