The North Carolina Forum On
Nutrient Over-Enrichment

The Science, Economics, and Options
for Proactive Public Policy

Like other states, North Carolina has experienced the negative effects of nutrient pollution in our surface waters–particularly in our lakes and estuaries–and we are searching for new approaches to address the challenge. In order to better inform the wise development of regulations or other policy responses to this challenge, the NC Division of Water Quality and the Environmental Management Commission is hosting this FORUM to provide state and local leaders, managers, and planners with a well-balanced review of the science, regulatory issues, economic considerations, and other policy issues related to nutrient over-enrichment and options for avoiding impairment to our surface waters.

Who Should Attend

  • State and Local Leaders, Managers, and Planners
  • Local Governments, City Managers, Public Utility Directors
  • State and Federal Agencies
  • Major NPDES Permit Holders, Business, and Industries
  • Leaders of Non-governmental Organization

The Forum will be held at the:

Sheraton Imperial Hotel & Convention Center
