The Municipal Online Stormwater Training (MOST) Center has announced a new course on urban stormwater best management practices (BMPs) for the Chesapeake Bay, a new “Case Stories From the Chesapeake” resource, and two new video series on public-private partnerships and innovative local stormwater projects. The MOST Center was established in 2015 and provides virtual courses and resources on local stormwater management programs, including administrative, budget, and technical information. All resources are free and the self-paced courses are available 24/7. From a recent MOST email notice (2017-09-11):
Exciting things are happening at the MOST Center!
Last week, the MOST Team released our latest course A User’s Guide to Urban BMPs in the Chesapeake Bay, developed in partnership with the Chesapeake Stormwater Network. Be sure to check it out, along with others in our course catalog.
And there’s more!
Later this month, we will be unveiling a brand new resource, Case Stories from the Chesapeake, developed in partnership with the Maryland League of Conservation Voters and the Choose Clean Water Coalition. This interactive map highlights 50 projects throughout Maryland where communities and local governments worked together to solve polluted runoff problems. These stories model how clean water funds are being used to keep our waterways healthy, beautiful, and economically viable.
We are also looking forward to debuting two new video series! The first features conversations with experts on Public-Private Partnerships, followed by a second series that highlights local leaders championing stormwater-related innovation.
