Greetings regional stormwater partners:
King County and our regional partners are excited to share the registration link and high-level agenda for the next event in the Stormwater Summit series, Aligning Across Watersheds: Regional Stormwater Technical Workshops. The event will be virtual and occur from 9AM-12PM on Tuesday and Wednesday, November 1st and 2nd.
This interactive event will focus on:
- Co-designing aspirational, regional stormwater management goals – setting implementation targets that we, as practitioners, can commit to at the watershed scale
- Identifying barriers to achieving those goals
- Elevating new planning tools that will help inform more strategic stormwater investments, and
- Identifying the roles each of our organizations and jurisdictions can play to contribute to those goals
On Day One, we’ll connect the dots back to the May 2021 Stormwater Summit and introduce potential goals statements that we, as a region, could commit to. We’ll then engage participants in evaluating those goals statements – what resonates, what’s missing, and what barriers we face in achieving those targets.
On Day Two, we’ll recap the input received on Day One, review the new technical tools that inform more strategic investments in regional stormwater management, and then identify the supporting roles that each of us can play in making those goals a reality. Technical tools will be featured from King County, City of Tacoma, and Stewardship Partners.
Registration is now live, please click here. A more detailed agenda will be sent out to all registrants approximately two weeks before the event.
At the first Stormwater Summit, we led with our values and committed to co-designing next steps with all participating organizations. On November 1 and 2, we’ll take the next step – co-designing aspirational but informed implementation targets that will dramatically reduce the amount of untreated stormwater pollution that makes its way to Puget Sound. Our team is very excited for the coming conversations and we are eager to gather together and envision and create the cleaner water future we are all working toward.
On behalf of our team and our partners, thank you for the work you do, and we look forward to seeing you in November.
