This site was formed in 1999 to fill a need to provide water-resource related education and mentoring in urban environments.  The group has grown to include a diverse set of issues and concerns.  Meetings are held occasionally in response to requests for education on specific topics or issues of concern.  The group also works together to garner ideas and creative responses to permit issues, regulatory proposals, etc. Membership is open to any government employee or contractor.  More often, questions are sent out via email for assistance.

Please contact me at if you are interested in being part of the group, attending a meeting, need assistance with a particular issue or problem, have a job posting or would like to discuss an idea or topic to present to the group. Topics could include issues such as stormwater management, lake or pond treatment, stream bank restoration, native plant landscaping, salt alternatives, shoreland restoration, groundwater protection, TMDL's, buffers, water quality rule updates, research results, etc.

NOTE - The "Links of Interest" page includes general information about interesting or innovative ideas.  I have recently "downsized" what is on there, so if you would like to share any great new sites please let me know!

Job Postings are listed chronologically, in the order by which applications are due.  You may need to scroll down to find new postings.
