• This was a wonderful workshop!

• Overall this was a good course.

• Excellent workshop, thank you both very much!

• The IDDE program I am involved with based our field, lab, and reporting activities off of the CWP's guidance manual, so I did find a lot of the information that was presented too basic for my needs. That being said, I think it was a great resource for those who are just beginning IDDE programs. The information was presented clearly and logically and I loved the discussion between participants.

• Really enjoyed the class, it was fun being able to interact with IDDE professionals from different municipalities

• It was great thanks!

• Great job! Good overview. The discussion on air conditioner/refrigeration unit condensate discharges was of great interest. Thanks!

• I appreciated the mix of classroom, field, and lab sessions. Thank you for providing the slides and other resources. We look forward to talking with you more about IDDE programs in the Coastal Plain. Thanks!
