Summary of Roundtable and Tour

The DES  Watershed Assistance Section hosted the 2010 Watershed Managers Roundtable (2nd Edition) and Project Site Tours on Oct 7th, at the DES Coastal Office, Pease Tradeport, Portsmouth.  Attendees included approximately 50 past, current, and future 319 Watershed Assistance and Restoration grantees, private consultants, and representatives from several EPA Programs and the DES Watershed Management Bureau.  Participants were provided with updates on communication management strategies that were developed following the 2009 roundtable including this watershed forum Blog.  Attendees then contributed to a 1 ½ hour roundtable discussion of project successes and trials and tribulations.  The afternoon included a bus tour to visit the Hodgson Brook Restoration Project, Portsmouth, Cain’s Pond Restoration Project, Seabrook, and the Cocheco River project at School Street School in Rochester. 

Thank you to all of the participants in this event.  The hosts at the project site tours and the contribution from the attendees make this event a success.
