Incorporating Water Management into the Community Planning Process

This workshop was designed to build the capacity of HUD Sustainable Communities and EPA grant recipients to face water management issues within their communities.  Topics during this workshop addressed both policy and technical issues communities may face when seeking to communicate with their community about changes in the way water resources are preserved. Peer learning was an important component of this workshop which was designed to encourage interaction both between participants and with the experts brought in to speak about specific issues.
