Representatives from agencies regulating and protecting wetlands and streams will help you understand the rules and your rights. State and federal regulations for streams and wetlands will be outlined, including enforcement and availability of easement and conservation programs. We will cover the regulatory outlook for tile drainage, including ways to manage tile drainage for improved climate change adaptation, nutrient capture, and performance. Additionally, the draft Memphremagog Basin Plan will be presented for feedback, outlining the entire action plan but focusing on details about the agricultural part of the plan.
