About the Workshop

Many stormwater control measures (aka BMPs) were installed using now-outdated designs. Furthermore, many of these practices are no longer working as intended. This workshop reviews (often simple) ways of improving existing practices. SCMs such as bioretention, dry ponds, downspout disconnections, wet ponds, swales, and rainwater harvesting systems can all be improved by minor modifications. This benefits parties interested in improving and accounting for nutrient removal, pathogen retention, runoff volume mitigation, carbon sequestration, and practice appearance. Note: attending this class will provide a 1-year extension for Stormwater SCM Inspection & Maintenance Certification. Certification must be currently active/valid (i.e. expires 12/31/2020 or later) to receive a 1-year extension.
