There are estimated to be over 26,000 small town governments (with populations less than 10,000) in this country that address and are challenged by complex environmental management issues such as aging wastewater treatment plants, drinking water systems, incinerators, storm water systems, and landfills. Small communities handle solid waste, medical waste, liquid waste and hazardous waste and are often burdened with the staggering costs of meeting compliance and addressing new regulations. This meeting will focus on these many complex and diverse environmental management issues faced by small communities. A field trip will provide an onsite investigation of the varied environmental issues that impact small communities. Additionally, the purpose of the meeting is to improve and enhance our understanding of these needs and build the partnerships at the federal, state, and local level to address the needs of small communities.
