About The 2017 Water Quality Workshop
Join us for the 13th Annual North Carolina Water Quality Compliance Workshop co-sponsored by the North Carolina Manufacturers Alliance (NCMA) and the North Carolina Division of Water Resources (DWR) and the North Carolina Division of Energy, Mineral and Land Resources (DEMLR).
The 2017 Workshop will provide an opportunity for the regulated community to come together with the staff of the North Carolina Division of Water Resources and the North Carolina Division of Energy, Mineral and Land Resources in an informal setting to develop a shared understanding of the law and regulations that may impact the regulated community in 2017. Understanding those laws and regulations and the expectations of those charged with administrating them will help your organization develop the most effective compliance strategies and control costs.
The presenters at the Workshop are from North Carolina Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR), Division of Water Resources (DWR) and Division of Energy, Mineral, and Land Resources (DEMLR). So you will have a unique opportunity to interact and learn directly from the DEQ staff charged with implementing and enforcing the state’s water quality laws and regulations.
The 2017 Workshop will introduce both experienced and entry level attendees to the topics likely to be the most important for achieving and maintaining compliance in the upcoming year. This year’s agenda consists of topics selected by the DWR as well as topics requested by members of the regulated community in a November 2016 survey.
There will be plenty of time for questions during each presentation as well as during breaks and lunch. Attendees with specific questions prior to the workshop can also submit those questions to NCMA. NCMA will then provide the questions to DWR staff anonymously so that they can address the questions during the Workshop.
To submit a question for the workshop, e-mail your question to jim@myNCMA.org.
