7:10-7:30    Summary of 3/24/99 Visions and Water Quality Issues Session. A summary has been prepared of the input collected at the last IO meeting. The IO will have an opportunity to comment on and discuss the summary, as well as any next steps you would like to see as follow-up.

7:30-8:20   1st-Year Interim List of Watershed Recommendations. The NYS Department of State has required that interim lists of implementation recommendations for watershed protection be developed. The first-year interim list is being prepared through communication with the county water quality coordinating committees, the Technical Committee and the IO. The intention is to identify interim projects that would benefit water quality efforts in the watershed for which funds could be applied in upcoming funding cycles – rather than waiting until the end of the project to present a set of final recommendations and missing interim funding opportunities. The IO will be asked for input on the draft list and be asked for ideas for additional projects that should be on included.

8:20-8:40   IO Committee Status, Reports and Related Discussion. The Technical and Membership Committees have formed and the Education/Outreach/Public Participation Committee is forming. Each will report on its status. Opportunity will be provided for discussion about these Committees and those yet to form.

8:40-8:50   Project and Financial Status. Report from project staff.

8:50-9:00  Set Date and Agenda for the Next and Future IO Meetings.
