Stormwater Webcasts

EPA is announcing a new series of webcast training sessions for municipal stormwater managers. Designed for those unable to attend out-of-town or multi-day workshops, this series will provide a mix of basic and advanced topics in two-hour blocks. These webcasts will allow participants to listen to lectures and see presentations through their computers. Webcasts will be scheduled approximately every other month from now until September.

First Webcast:

Post-Construction Overview and Introduction to Smart Growth and Low Impact Development. March 8, 2006, 1-3 pm EST. Nikos Singelis, U.S. EPA Stormwater Program, Instructor. Geoffrey Anderson, Director of EPA's Smart Growth Program, Guest Speaker.

More than 5,000 municipal stormwater permittees are required to develop a post-construction program to address stormwater runoff from new development and redevelopment. The post-construction programs must include requirements to install BMPs and ensure maintenance of those BMPs. To implement an effective program, municipalities need to look beyond the individual site to assess how post-construction controls will affect the entire watershed. This presentation will describe the post-construction program requirements and how innovative programs such as Low Impact Development and Smart Growth can be used to help meet these requirements.

  • Stormwater Utilities 201 - 7/12/06
