2012 MACC Fall Conference
Roads and Water:
Maintenance & Protection
Saturday, November 10 - Clark University, Worcester
Check-in 7:30 a.m. Program 8:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.
Roads crisscross over thousands of miles of the Commonwealth’s landscape and water bodies. Their continual need for maintenance and repair creates frequent challenges for local boards, frequently Conservation Commissions and Departments of Public Works. Yet, coordinating efforts to repair roads or replace culverts while concurrently protecting water resources is an achievable goal, and opportunities for streamlining the regulatory process exist.
At MACC’s Fall Conference this year, we will learn about tools and opportunities for local officials to meet serious road repair and resource protection challenges, including: permitting requirements and exemptions, hazard mitigation planning, a variety of maintenance topics, emergency repairs and emergency regulations.
MACC’s Fall Conference is geared for Conservation Commissioners and Agents, Department of Public Works Directors and Staff, Planning Boards, Road Engineers and interested citizens who want to learn about road maintenance procedures that are sensitive to water resource protection.
