About the workshop:
Constructed stormwater wetlands are an integral practice associated with stormwater management, with application from North Carolina's mountains to coast. Through research, these stormwater control measures (or BMPs) have been shown to outperform most practices to remove pollutants and hold the best potential to provide other important services such as carbon sequestration and air quality improvement. This training will focus on new information regarding stormwater wetlands collected by NC State and others. Topics to be discussed for the first time are designing wetlands to store carbon, establishing nutrient removal benchmarks to meet watershed rules, and navigating the permit process. This class is intended for those with experience in stormwater management practice design, review, and supervision. A field tour to visit constructed stormwater wetlands incorporating many of the newest design features is conducted.
Registration starts at 8:30am with class starting at 9:00am. Workshop concludes by 4:45pm.
