Training Session for Wellhead Planning Tools Announced for March 23rd
Calling local planners and environmental professionals!
The Tri-County Regional Planning Commission (Tri-County) is hosting a training session with the Groundwater Management Board on their recently updated Environmental Permits Checklist. This training will review the checklist and cover how the Wellhead Protection Viewer can be used in conjunction with the document to support local processes such as site plan reviews and emergency planning. This training is ideal for staff involved in site plan review processes, community planners, wellhead protection teams, emergency management coordinators, and new staff interested in learning more about these tools.
The session will take place in the large conference room at the Tri-County office (3135 Pine Tree Rd, Suite 2C, Lansing, MI 48911) on Thursday, March 23rd from 1:00 – 3:00 p.m. and will be led by Environmental Sustainability Planner Lauren Schnoebelen.
The session will kick off with a walk through of the Environmental Permits Checklist and accompanying appendix, which provides additional background regarding permits. An example of how to use the checklist in day-to-day planning activities will also be provided. The second half of the session will include an overview of the Wellhead Protection Viewer, a demonstration of the tool and how it can supplement the Checklist, and a screening of training videos created for the Viewer. There will be an opportunity for Q&A following each segment and copies of the Checklist and Viewer training manual will be provided for each participant to keep.
Space is limited and based on a first-come, first-served, basis. Register by March 16th at mitcprc.org/events.
