Resiliency: Sustainable Stormwater Practices for the Future

GBCI: 0920010784

Stormwater run off has become the sustainable development issue of our time that must be addressed to improve safety, mitigate flood events, and improves water quality and quantity. Over time, watershed areas have changed as our communities and cities become more developed, resulting in damage and other severe consequences whenever heavy rain events occur due to stormwater runoff.
Eligible for 4 CE HOURS.

Rating system: v4, v2009



Through a series of selected speakers and panel discussion, the event will explore alternatives to current stormwarter practices. The event will bring into focus and discussion, how we can mitigate the impacts of stormwater, what are the new design parameters, and what are the hydrological dynamics from a watershed and soils perspective. Our presenters and panelists represent a cross section of professionals, municipalities, and universities


  1. Understand the severe impacts stormwater runoff for safety, costs, and environmental impacts.
  2. Gain a fresh approach to design alternatives from an engineering hydro-logical and watershed perspective.
  3. Learn from cities and programs what is currently being done to address the green building design standards and criteria now and in the future.
  4. Learn how we can go beyond LID (Low Impact Development) and how infiltration and soil dynamics can help our urban runoff.
