stormwater congress

“I’m really excited about the first-ever Stormwater Congress at WEFTEC 2013. The Congress will build on the success of last year’s inaugural Stormwater Symposium. The event further demonstrates WEF’s commitment to the growing stormwater management market and its importance to WEF’s mission of preserving and enhancing the global water environment.” 

– Larry Jaworski, co-chair of the 2012 Stormwater Symposium and past WEF president.

Online registration is now open for the Water Environment Federation’s (WEF) inaugural Stormwater Congress in Chicago on October 5-9, 2013. Check out the Stormwater Pavilion and more than 106 presentations related to stormwater. Engage with leaders in the stormwater sector and be part of something innovative and different at WEFTEC® 2013. The stormwater audience and topic is growing rapidly. The Stormwater Congress builds upon WEF’s momentum from the 2012 Stormwater Symposium. Stormwater also has a long and successful history at WEFTEC, and as a result, WEF will expand stormwater offerings and host an integrated event, the Stormwater Congress.
