Several drivers, including the Chesapeake Bay TMDL and MS4 permit requirements, are increasing the demand for stormwater retrofitting as a tool for reducing urban runoff and pollution. Stormwater retrofitting has emerged as one of the solutions to mitigate the impact of un-managed runoff from developed areas as well as to provide better water quality treatment in older stormwater structures, such as detention ponds.
This free workshop is for practitioners with at least a basic understanding of stormwater management design and with an interest in learning more about the nuts and bolts of stormwater retrofitting. The two-day program will include a mix of lecture, discussion, small group exercises, and field activities. We encourage you to bring your laptops for the design exercise portion of the workshop. The focus of this training is on how to locate and prioritize retrofit opportunities in developed areas, through field investigations and concept drawings. We will cover retrofitting streets, existing stormwater basins, public lands, and other topics.
Workshop space is limited, please pre-register by Wednesday, April 24, 2013. For more information, please email Normand Goulet or Corey Miles
