NEMO team awarded
The Connecticut Non-point Education for Municipal Officials (NEMO) team received the Renewable Natural Resources Foundation's 2006 Outstanding Achievement Award for their publication, “Putting Communities in Charge.” This publication is the first official compilation of local actions catalyzed by the Connecticut NEMO project. The National NEMO Network, led by the University of Connecticut, coordinates activities across 31 states to help communities better protect natural resources while accommodating growth.
Assistance is rendered through non-regulatory, research-based educational outreach programs that emphasize natural resource-based land use planning and better site design. NIFA has provided funding support for the National NEMO network through its National Integrated Water Quality Program.
