WEFTEC 2012®, held Sept. 30 through Oct. 3 in New Orleans, featured three stormwater workshops and more than 75 technical presentations. Sessions covered topics from urban forestry and green infrastructure to managing peak wet weather flows to regulatory issues. Watch some of these sessions with WEFTEC On Demand. Recorded stormwater sessions include “Creating and Supporting Stormwater Utilities,” “Gray, Green, and Integrated Stormwater Design,” and “Clean Water Policy Update.” Using WEFTEC On Demand, there is also an option to earn educational credits.
WEFTEC’s first ever Stormwater Pavilion featured more than 30 exhibitors, with products ranging from those designed to prevent inflow and infiltration to those for capturing and using stormwater onsite. In addition to the latest equipment, there were also exhibitors offering services, such as stormwater certification programs. A showcase highlighted the best from stormwater exhibitors.
A “Books and Bagels” discussion highlighted WEF’s recently released Design of Urban Stormwater Controls. One of the authors, Daniel Medina, moderated the discussion, as he did in a webcast series about the book earlier this year (view the recordings here).
The Water Environment Federation’s Stormwater, Watershed Management, and Groundwater committees also met at WEFTEC to discuss future projects. The committees help to author and review water resources related publications, conference workshops and sessions, webcasts, and other products.
