A New World: Rethinking Stormwater in Response to Climate Change

COURSE DESCRIPTION

Engineers design facilities and make predictions based on the observation and modeling of past hydrologic events. This is based on the unspoken assumption that future events will be similar to past events when measured in terms of frequency, duration, and magnitude.

But with the impact of climate change on stormwater…
is this a good assumption?

Join returning speaker Doug Beyerlein, P.E., P.H., D.WRE, as we explore how climate change impacts stormwater runoff, how to account for climate change in the design of stormwater and flood control facilities, and how secondary effects such as sea level rise indirectly impact stormwater runoff.

Specifically, this online training webinar outlines how to account for climate change when calculating stormwater and designing flood control facilities to mitigate the impacts of climate change on flooding and low flows. We’ll start by discussing the primary and secondary effects of climate change on stormwater runoff. We’ll examine how the heating of the atmosphere increases storm energy and evaporation. This increased storm energy has the potential to produce larger and more intense precipitation events, leading to increased stomwater runoff and larger floods. Finally, and most importantly, we’ll learn how to use this information to improve our stormwater predictions and facility designs.

Learning Objectives
