As construction picks up in the region, many of our localities are struggling with fill dirt and inert debris dump sites popping up in rural areas. These problematic sites come in many forms, but some have caused significant problems because they are well in excess of the stated agricultural purpose and are impacting adjacent landowners and citizens. 

The workshop is intended for county and municipal staff from legal, zoning, stormwater, erosion and sediment control departments, as well as planning commissioners and elected officials.
