Stay current with stormwater best practices and industry trends by joining us for the 2017 Stormwater Webcast Series presented by the Center for Watershed Protection (CWP).

Mark Land, P.E., CFM, Vice President of Snyder & Associates

 

“We believe in a lot of the things they’re [the CWP] doing on the east coast,” states Mark Land, P.E., CFM, Vice President of Snyder & Associates. “Their work is relevant to what we do here in the Midwest, and it’s important to know what’s going on in our industry.”

 

As members of the CWP, the Snyder & Associates water resources team is pleased to host the CWP webcasts as an opportunity to learn alongside clients and fellow industry professionals.

 

Adam Bullerman, P.E., ENV SP

“These are important topics that our clients are dealing with right now,” shares Adam Bullerman, P.E., ENV SP, Civil Engineer for Snyder & Associates. “They encourage us to think outside the box and create a forum for discussion. Not to mention, the mix of different topics means that there’s something of value for everyone.”

 

Dates and topics include:


June 21 – Making Urban Trees Count

While the water quality benefits of forest are widely accepted, not much has been successfully determined regarding the runoff and pollution-reducing capability of trees in urban landscapes. This webinar will review stormwater crediting systems for urban tree plantings and present a new crediting system for stormwater management, TMDLs, and other water quality aspects.

September 13 – Stream Restoration: Where Are We Now?

Stream restoration helps achieve many objectives including the reduction of pollutants for TMDL compliance, but scientists often debate about the practices used. This webinar will explore expert panel recommendations to quantify stream restoration benefits, discuss how stream restoration contributes to meeting water quality goals, and results of the Water Environment & Reuse Foundation’s (WERF)  Stream Restoration as a BMP: Crediting Guidance.

October 18 – Bringing Better Site Design into the 21st Century

Learn about the recently revised Better Site Design Handbook published by the CWP, which reflects the latest in stormwater management technology and regulations including MS4 permits and case studies.

November 15, 2017 – Modeling for Water Quality

Learn about new tools for estimating pollutant loads, potential applications, and case studies that illustrate how modeling is useful in achieving goals.
