U.S. EPA’s TRASH FREE WATERS PROGRAM DISCUSSION IN BILOXI THIS THURSDAY, JULY 14, 2014:
Trash is a pervasive problem for our oceans and coasts, causing economic and environmental impacts in neighborhoods, creeks, rivers and our coasts. Given the land-based origins of trash found in water, EPA has developed a program called Trash Free Waters (TFW), to support trash prevention and reduction efforts by many public and private stakeholders. The TFW program has a strong emphasis on helping states, communities, NGOs, and businesses work together to develop innovative management strategies to reduce trash in waters located along, or feed into, the Gulf of Mexico. EPA is traveling along the Gulf Coast to engage a variety of stakeholders to gain understanding of communities’ concerns regarding trash in their waters.
THE EPA INVITES YOU TO JOIN THE CONVERSATION ABOUT TRASH-FREE WATERS
To discuss the types of trash impacting your waters and identify ways that EPA can bring value in your pursuit for trash free waters.
