Watershed Management and Stormwater Best Management Practices

Wednesday, October 4th  |  Workshop Session 5 11:15 AM - 12:15 PM |  Meeting Room 6

Speaker: Kasey Hutchinson, Water Resources Consultant

Stormwater BMPs provide a sustainable alternative to traditional stormwater management, preventing and mitigating the issues that are a direct result of collecting, transporting and discharging stormwater runoff into local waterways as quickly as possible. Decreasing pollutant loads, flood and erosion reduction and habitat protection can all be achieved through the infiltration of stormwater that BMPs provide. Stormwater BMP case studies will be presented with one of the main takeaways being that recognition and careful consideration of secondary benefits during the planning of these practices can facilitate their leverage for any given project. Engaging, educating and satisfying stakeholders lends to public support of alternative and sustainable, stormwater management.
