The Long Island Sound Coastal Watershed Network (LIS CWN) is focused on bringing together communities, groups and individuals working to reduce pollution loads entering Long Island Sound and its rivers, harbors, and bays. In 2021, we hosted “Long Island Sound: Driving Local Actions to Tackle Water Pollution”, a collaborative webinar series designed to showcase and advance local actions that target pollution from activities on land including nitrogen pollution, fecal bacteria, and consumer plastics and debris – that enter the Sound’s water through sewage, stormwater, and groundwater.
Join us for our 2022 events, including webinars advancing local actions for cleaner waters and healthy watersheds in Long Island Sound. Hear from scientists and practitioners about approaches to combat pollution and clean up coastal waters in communities around Long Island Sound. This year’s webinar series will focus on creating connections, collaborations for change, reducing cost barriers for implementation.
The webinar series will bring people from across the Sound together to learn about advancements in technology and policy that tackles our biggest water quality challenges—from fecal bacteria, nitrogen, and marine debris/plastic pollution. These forums will inspire action. Each webinar will allow time for a question and answer session with the panelists and technical break-out groups for those that want to take a deeper dive on pollution issues.
