The Sustainable Water Management Initiative and Water Management Act Regulation Revisions

Monday, February 10, 2014 12:30 PM to 1:30 PM
Boston Bar Association - 16 Beacon Street, Boston, MA

 

Description:

SWMI is the Commonwealth of Massachusetts’s Sustainable Water Management Initiative.  It was created in 2010 by the Executive Office of Energy and Environmental Affairs and included input from a wide range of stakeholders and support from the Department of Environmental Protection (MassDEP), the Department of Fish and Game, and the Department of Conservation and Recreation.  Its purpose is to reevaluate the way the Commonwealth manages water so that there is enough for the many and sometimes competing long-term water needs of our communities and our aquatic ecosystems.

This panel will provide an overview of the final SWMI Framework, highlight pilot projects conducted to “test” its application, and describe the key components of the draft regulations that will be published in early 2014.
