Welcome to the MDC
About the Workshop
The state of North Carolina has redone design standards for every single stormwater control measure (SCM), aka Best Management Practice (BMP). The changes are based upon a NCDEQ-led work team consisting of researchers, local municipalities, and consultants to develop Minimum Design Criteria (MDCs) and establish pollutant removal credits for SCMs in North Carolina. Faculty from NC State along with NCDEQ personnel are teaming up to explain the MDC process, discuss the new SCM Crediting Document, and review MDCs for approved SCMs. Attendees will participate in hands-on exercises that will allow for MDCs to be reviewed and applied to SCM designs. If you either design or review designs for SCMs, this is a “must see” training!
Note regarding Stormwater Reviewer Certification: The Stormwater Reviewer Certification Program provides a comprehensive training program for local government personnel and other stormwater plan reviewers that is implemented by DEQ and N.C. State University Department of Biological and Agricultural Engineering. Individuals can become certified is by taking the Welcome to the MDC Workhop that covers all major stormwater control measures in the state Stormwater Design Manual. To maintain certification, reviewers are required to successfully complete an online re-certification exam when it is offered. There is no fee for the online re-certification exams. Questions about the Stormwater Reviewer Certification Program may be directed to Annette Lucas at 919-807-6381 or firstname.lastname@example.org.

Annette Lucas, PE
Annette Lucas is an Environmental Engineer with the North Carolina Division of Energy, Mineral and Land Resources.
Sarah Waickowski, PE, EI
Sarah Waickowski grew up in the great town of Fellsmere, FL and attended the University of Florida. She earned her B.S. in Civil Engineering with a specialization in Water Resources in December 2012. Her interest in stormwater grew after competing in the Florida Water Environment Association (FWEA) Student Design competition. She helped to treat runoff from a bridge by designing the conveyance network and identifying the site’s hydrologic characteristics. Sarah moved to Raleigh, NC and joined the Stormwater Engineering Group after completing her second internship with Duke Energy Progress at their Brunswick Nuclear Power Plant. She is pursuing her M.S. in Biological and Agricultural Engineering under the direction of Dr. Bill Hunt. At NC State, Sarah’s research will focus on gross solids, or large particles, collected in catch basins throughout various municipalities in the Piedmont and Coastal regions.
