Hampton Roads Regional Stormwater Training

Hampton Roads has over a dozen communities that are affected by Phase I or Phase II stormwater regulations. To date, no region-wide training has been available to local government employees. A regional training makes sense for a variety of reasons. All local governments in Hampton Roads share similar interests, concerns, and challenges. It will benefit all of us to learn from each other and to exchange information about those areas we have in common.
