Severe Weather Emergency Declaration under the WPA and its regulations

This discussion will give an overview on the Severe Weather Emergency Declaration under the WPA and its regulations. Presenters Nancy Lin and Mike Stroman of MassDEP will take us through what these declarations are, how they are used, and what commissions should do during issuance under the WPA and its regulations. More details to come. 

Our Presenters:

Nancy Lin is the Wetland Circuit Rider Coordinator and created the Circuit Rider Program in 1995. Since 1988 Nancy has overseen the outreach and training for MassDEP's Wetlands and Waterways Program, as well as writing and managing grants that forward wetlands/waterways programmatic goals. As a certified Professional Wetlands Scientist (PWS), Nancy has developed, produced and implemented many of the Program's technical, regulatory and general outreach/training efforts. Prior to MassDEP, Nancy was the Director of the City of Cambridge's Conservation Commission; managed natural history and staff training for the New York City Park Ranger program; and was a naturalist/teacher at a national Environmental Education Landmark, High Rock Park Conservation Center. Nancy responds to overall Circuit Rider inquiries and can answer technical and regulatory questions from commissions when the regional circuit rider cannot be reached.
