The State of New Hampshire has developed a novel way to provide for effective snow management and removal while also reducing impacts of chlorides on the environment. The Green Snow Pro program provides training and certification in efficient and environmentally friendly winter maintenance practices for municipal, state, and private snow plow drivers. Certified Green Snow Pro Drivers receive liability protection.
This webinar will highlight how the program was developed, how it works, and what kind of impact it has had. There will also be some discussion of efforts to try to adapt the model to CT.
CT NEMO is providing tools, training and other support to communities facing new stormwater rules under the MS4 general permit.
