The second in a series of EPA-funded webinars coordinated by the Minnesota Pollution Control Association is set for Wednesday, November 20, 2013 at 9:30 am CST.  The focus of this session is the State/Provincial-level efforts.

As you can see from the agenda below it will include discussions from representatives from Minnesota, Wisconsin, and Michigan.  While the Minnesota efforts are reasonably well known, the efforts to phase out the use of coal tar sealants in these other states and provinces are less well-known.  Some may not realize that the nation's second ban of coal tar sealers was in Dane County, Wisconsin.  It was an important first acknowledgment that other water quality professionals came to the same conclusions as those of us in Austin.

We have covered the issues in Michigan and Wisconsin with the posts shown below and in the future will include reporting on activities in Indiana, Illinois, Ohio and the Canadian Province of Ontario.
