Stormwater 2-for-1 Special: You and Your Watershed

COURSE DESCRIPTION

Course 1 - Watershed Restoration Analysis and Integration with Urban Planning

Don’t assume … assess! Optimize your urban planning efforts by studying the watershed first! Join Paul Crabtree, P.E., CNU-A, to explore the importance of conducting a watershed restoration analysis prior to planning, as well as how to design, implement, and assess this analysis to identify comprehensive and effective strategies and solutions for integrating rainwater practice with capital improvement plans and urban planning.

Significant time and financial resources are invested in rainwater programs, yet it is wasted as stormwater regulations continue to be written without watershed analysis. It’s time to question conventional wisdom and integrate watershed analysis prior to the stormwater regulations creation. By integrating a watershed restoration study before regulations, you can avoid wasted efforts, identify effective rainwater measures, and ensure successful results.

Don’t assume the problems of the watershed, investigate them! In this online training webinar, we’ll explore the importance of conducting a watershed restoration analysis prior to planning, how to integrate it into capital improvement plans and urban planning, and how this investigation can reveal real opportunities for comprehensive, effective solutions saving your municipality and the public and private sectors wasted cost, time, and effort.

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

  • Learn why watershed analysis should be done prior to establishing or revising rainwater regulations.
  • Learn what to do when regulations are established prior to watershed analysis.
  • Learn strategies for integrating rainwater practice with capital improvement plans.
  • Learn strategies for integrating rainwater practice with urban planning.

Course 2 - Up the Creek – Establishing an Effective Public-Private Partnership

In 2009, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) exercised its Residual Designation Authority (RDA) in Maine’s Long Creek Watershed District – a commercial and retail district. In response to this precedent use of RDA, a public-private partnership was formed (the Long Creek Watershed Management District) between several stakeholder groups (e.g., EPA, Main DEP, Cumberland County Soil and Water Conservation District, municipalities, transportation, local non-profits, and 50+ local businesses) which implements stormwater permit requirements for 97% of the designated landowners in the watershed covering 70% of the watershed’s impervious area.

Join Tamara Lee Pinard as she discusses her experience developing the Long Creek Watershed Management District (a public-private partnership) through a two-year stakeholder collaboration, and lays out the steps for you to establish a working public-private partnership of your own.

In this online training webinar, we’ll explore the crucial steps involved in establishing a working public-private partnership to develop a locally supported management plan, the process of developing a legal structure for cooperative implementation of the management plan, and how you can implement these in your community. Within this discussion, Pinard will review the Residual Designation Authority (RDA) – what it is, how it was used, and the results from its use in Long Creek. Additionally, we’ll discuss the Long Creek Watershed Management District design and implementation, and examine its accomplishments, including results from the Long Creek water quality monitoring program. Finally, we’ll explore the lessons learned, outcome strategies, and best practices you can implement in your design of a comprehensive public-private watershed program.

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

  • Learn how to build a public private partnership that works.
  • Learn effective approaches to bring businesses to the table.
  • Gain understanding of the Residual Designation Authority – what it is, how it was used and the results from its use in the Long Creek Watershed.
  • Learn how to best plan and implement on a watershed scale.
