  • Best management practices (BMPs) — presented via case studies by industry peers
  • Green infrastructure — i.e., low-impact development techniques, rainwater harvesting
  • Stormwater program management — funding, public education/outreach, staffing, regulatory compliance
  • Water-quality monitoring — monitoring and sampling techniques, modeling practices
  • Advanced research topics — academic research, testing methods, and research trends such as standardized testing protocols and standards for measuring the effectiveness of BMPs.

Preconference sessions take place Sunday and Monday, Aug. 19 and 20, with full-day workshops and national certification courses. Regular conference sessions include more than 140 presentations and can't-miss events like Tuesday, Aug. 21's opening general session on how your stormwater program may be impacted by new regulations.
