Jordan/Falls Lake Stormwater Nutrient Load Accounting Tool Workshop

October 11, 2012 - 8:00am - 12:30pm
Kernodle Senior Center
1535 South Mebane Street
Burlington, NC 27215

About the workshop:

The purpose of this workshop is to provide training on the use of the Jordan/Falls Lake Stormwater Nutrient Load Accounting Tool which will be used under the recently passed Jordan/Falls Lake New Development Stormwater Rule requiring local governments in the Jordan and Falls Lake Watersheds to adopt and implement local stormwater programs by August and July 2012 respectively. The workshop is open to both local government personnel AND professional consultants who work in the Jordan and Falls Lake Watersheds.

A copy of the Jordan/Falls Lake Rules AND the Tool are available on the DWQ Jordan/Falls Lake Website:

The Jordan/Falls Lake accounting tool is an updated version of the current Tar-Pamlico tool. The old tool, while successfully used for many years has become outdated. The workshop will review why a new tool was needed to better represent known BMP function. The new tool will be discussed in detail, including the technical underpinnings, incorporated research and new features, required input information and generated output information.

Participants are encouraged to bring their laptops, as the tool will be distributed and instructors will walk through an example to demonstrate how the tool works.

This workshop offers 3 PDHs (professional development hours) for professional engineers and surveyors, authorized by the NC Board of Examiners for Engineers and Surveyors. Other professionals may appeal to their respective boards to obtain professional education credits. We will provide a certificate of attendance at the conclusion of the workshop.

This workshop is offered by: NC State University Department of Biological & Agricultural Engineering.
