Using Hydro-Meterological Guidance for Stormwater Management & Operations


Improve your stormwater management and reduce your risk of damage. Join Michael McMahon to explore how improved weather forecasting of quantitative precipitation and real-time quantitative precipitation estimate guidance for flooding can benefit your stormwater program’s mitigation, risk, and efficiency. This presentation explores the current state of hydro-meteorological technologies, and their application, implementation, and cost-to-benefit for consideration in your stormwater program.

Technology for real-time monitoring and prediction of meteorological and resulting flood events has been developing rapidly in response to the need for improved weather forecasting and real-time guidance for flooding and water supply. Significant advancement have greatly improved quantitative precipitation forecasts (QPF) and real-time quantitative precipitation estimate (QPE) guidance from Doppler Radar producing a drastic improvement in time-to-warn, while decreasing costs for terrestrial gage equipment. 

For stormwater and combined sewer managers, this new technology offers the ability to improve mitigation practices, reduce property damage risks and claims, and greatly increase efficiency of operations and personnel. Additionally, this guidance can provide advanced warning and pro-active decision support to mitigate flooding and overflow, while ensuring the safety of lives and property. Although this technology offers significant advantages, the full use of hydro-meteorological guidance by city management has not reached far beyond minimal application of public weather and warning information (e.g., National Weather Service, Hydro-meteorological Prediction Center, etc.).

This webcast explores the advancements in technology and methodology from both public and private sector meteorological information providers that are game-changers for stormwater managers. We’ll discuss examples of real-life applications putting the concepts to work, and entertain questions throughout the webinar to address specific applications of interest to you.

Learning Objectives 
Attendees can expect the discussion and education of the following learning objectives:

  • Discover how weather forecasting and real-time guidance can provide decision support to stormwater managers
  • Learn how to apply specific forecasting tools to particular stormwater applications.
  • Develop an understanding of the what, where and the who of meteorological information.
  • Learn how improve safety and on-the-job efficiency from this detailed meteorological information.

* Presentations are scheduled for approximately one hour with a 15-20 minute question and answer session to follow. Presentation may exceed scheduled time. 
* Each state and certification agency has different requirements; it is your responsibility to know what they are. Note that 1 PDH = 0.1 CEU.
