This course offers 6 Professional Development Hours (PDH) for Professional Engineers. PA DEP credit is not available.
Municipal stormwater management is no longer just about engineering and building stormwater basins. Municipal stormwater managers must create a holistic program; one that incorporates planning, education, policy, finance, and compliance activities. Such an integrated program will lead to more cost-effective flood mitigation and water quality projects; and additional community benefits such as land preservation and urban greening.
The course will cover:
- The benefits of a comprehensive stormwater program;
- How Pennsylvania communities are partnering together to reduce the cost of stormwater management; and
- How new legislation enables the creation
- of Stormwater Authorities that can
- establish sustainable, dedicated, and
- legally defensible funding sources for
- stormwater management activities.
Active community leaders with responsibility for or interest in stormwater, such as a Stormwater Manager, DPW Manager, Borough/Township Manager, Council/Authority Member, Civil/Environmental Engineer, Planner, Non-Profit and/or Regulatory Agencies
As part of the Pennsylvania Water Environment Association (PWEA) Stormwater Committee’s (SWC) mission to share knowledge and experience with stormwater professionals in Pennsylvania, the SWC is initiating a series of informative workshops on issues concerning the implementation of stormwater management and compliance with MS4. These workshops are a good opportunity for you to interact directly with your colleagues and to gain new ideas related to stormwater management in keeping with the latest science.
