EFC and the MOST Center are pleased to announce a new online course:
Pet waste left on the ground washes into local waterways, polluting rivers, creeks, and streams. Bacteria and pathogens found in pet waste can also cause severe illness in humans. Implementing a pet waste management plan can help local governments meet their MS4 permit and TMDL requirements, protect public health, and improve community aesthetics. This course provides an overview of the different types of pet waste management plans and presents case studies on programs currently being implemented in the Chesapeake Bay watershed. By the end of this course, you will be able to identify the type of plan that works best for your community and have a wealth of resources to start your own program.
