Join more than 1,000 stormwater and environmental services professionals at the 9th Annual StormCon, the North American Surface Water Quality Conference & Exposition, Aug. 1 – 5 in San Antonio.

The pollution prevention conference offers expertise from the nation's leading engineering consultants as well as the opportunity to learn from case studies presented by public agencies, engineering consultants, contractors, and researchers. Find out the latest news and get insight into best management practices, sediment and erosion control techniques, low-impact developments, and water-quality monitoring programs.

It's not called the largest stormwater conference for nothing. Thousands of professionals responsible for storm-water management — including municipal managers, engineers, state and federal regulators, highway and heavy-construction contractors, developers, consultants, — attend the conference for international networking and education every year.

Several new programs include two workshops focusing on jobsite photography and how to use the WinSLAMM computer program to maintain or create a hydrologically functional landscape.

The opening general session is panel discussion on “The Future of Stormwater” will examine the ramifications of the EPA's 2009 release of construction-site effluent limitation guidelines, which will change the way many construction-site operators manage and measure storm-water runoff.
