PORTLAND, Maine (AP) - It’s all going down the drain in Portland.

Maine’s largest city is hosting the International Low Impact Development Conference, an event that highlights stormwater management and treatment systems.

A spokeswoman for the city says the conference will attract more than 300 engineers, regulators and academics who work in the planning, design, construction and operation ends of stormwater management.

The event will include regional tours, a lobster bake on Peaks Island and an event entitled “Clean Water and Great Beer.” That event will touch on the link between clean water and beer, which has been highlighted by groups such as the Natural Resources Defense Council.

There are also technical and planning sessions.

The conference began on Monday, continues on Tuesday and ends on Wednesday. It hasn’t been in Portland before.
