CLEAR’s NEMO (Nonpoint Education for Municipal Officials) program has been working with communities to protect water
quality through better land use since 1991. The program has been adapted in states around the country forming a now
informal network of like-minded programs - the National NEMO Network.
NEMO, with funding from CT DEEP, is providing multi-faceted support to communities and institutions
to help them comply with the state’s municipal stormwater regulation.
NEMO provides trainings, a website, and the multi-state Rain Garden mobile app to demonstrate how
to properly site, size, design, and install a stormwater filtering rain garden with plant, sizing, and soils
data specific to over 20 states.
