Chapter 102 Workshop - Cancelled

The Chapter 102 Workshop has been cancelled. Refunds have been issued but please contact Holly Kaplan at if there are any issues. 

Due to the ongoing health concerns, the Lehigh and Northampton Conservation Districts have decided to cancel the Chapter 102 Workshop. It is unclear when an event of this size will be safe to hold, so in the interest of providing training, the Districts will instead be making several of the presentations available online shortly. Please check back to the Districts' websites as we will be posting information as soon as it is available related to the NPDES permitting process and Chapter 102 E&S practices.

We appreciate your understanding and hope you find the posted presentations useful. Thank you,
