Overview

Stormwater from land development can have adverse effects on a municipality’s infrastructure. This webinar will review stormwater regulatory changes that have occurred over the last several decades in an attempt to counter these adverse effects.

 

A review of historical challenges and the different types of flooding will be presented as well as what types of flooding green infrastructure practices and low impact development methods can realistically help solve.  It will also explore how the pollution reduction plans that municipalities are being mandated to develop as part MS4 or TMDL plans fit into the larger stormwater framework.

 

It is important that future funding of stormwater efforts can be directed to on-site improvements of controlling stormwater runoff.
