The Hoosier Environmental Council is offering a series of training webinars on how to watchdog water and wetland permits. This task is well suited to the staff member or volunteer who is detail-oriented and willing to spend time on the computer digging through documents. The watchdogging effort is worthwhile because it can push the state and federal agencies to consider community concerns and write a permit with more environmental benefits. In these free webinars, we will cover
1. the basics of the water regulatory processes,
2. how to track the permits,
3. how to prioritize which permits to comment on, and
4. how to draft effective public comments on permit applications.
Part 1 will cover #1 – #3 and take place on Zoom Thursday, November 11, 6:00 – 7:00 PM Central / 7:00 PM – 8:00 PM Eastern.
