Stormwater Management

Workshop overview:


This workshop focuses on understanding the issues related to stormwater and provides steps to manage and reduce problems resulting from stormwater. We give guidance for managing stormwater in relation to roadway infrastructure and practices of local highway departments, from planning to maintenance. We discuss management and structural alternatives to give local officials a better understanding of what is available and what they can do to improve their approach to, and maintenance of, the watershed they live in.

Who Should Attend

Highway and public works officials, superintendents, crew leaders, field supervisors, and anyone else interested in learning about the fundamental concepts, management and maintenance of stormwater. This course is geared to provide a practical understanding of stormwater.

The bottom line

By learning best practices of stormwater management, you can minimize the impact of a destructive storm when it happens. Know the regulations and permits related from stormwater management to protect you from litigation.
