About the workshop:

NCDENR recently led a work team to develop Minimum Design Criteria (MDCs) for stormwater practices used in North Carolina. Wet Ponds and Constructed Stormwater Wetlands now have many new design features, including how to design ponds in infiltrating soils, credits for retrofitting wet ponds, and hydraulic retention design for constructed stormwater wetlands. Researchers/educators from NC State and regulators from NC DENR are teaming up to train designers, plan reviewers, and others how to design these larger-footprint practices used across North Carolina. This is the most comprehensive set of changes to pond design in at least 20 years. A field tour to visit innovative ponds or wetlands will be conducted at some of the venues where this workshop is being offered.

Registration starts at 8:30am with class starting at 9:00am. Workshop concludes by 4:45pm.
