The 2019 Indiana Association for Floodplain and Stormwater Management (INAFSM) Annual Conference was held in Fort Wayne September 4 - 6 with the theme “H20 Tech" featuring many vendors and presentations focused on emerging stormwater technologies. I attended this conference for the first time and, as an environmental scientist at the beginning of my career, my experience was filled with new insights.

Ever wonder what makes a compact fluorescent light (CFL) work? What's inside those weird looking bulbs and why are they a better alternative to incandescent light bulbs?
We've created this infographic to illuminate the facts about CFLs—why they're more energy efficient and how to dispose of them properly to avoid the release of mercury in the environment.
In this modern era, it is vital for communities to take it upon themselves to prioritize environmental awareness and responsibility. Through the Comprehensive Local Environmental Action Network (CLEAN) Community Challenge Program, the Indiana Department of Environmental Management (IDEM) is asking communities to dedicate themselves to better manage the environmental footprint from their municipal operations.
The CLEAN Community Challenge Program is designed to have the participating community develop initiatives that will result in the betterment of the local and state environment through the formation of a Quality of Life Plan.
Everyone is searching for ways to be greener, including communities looking for opportunities to make operations more energy efficient. One such opportunity offering excellent potential is your wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) - turning brown into green.
