BMP Fundamentals: Where We Are and Where We're Going


Starting with the first regulations in 1990, stormwater management has rapidly evolved. New technologies, approaches, and regulations regularly hitting the market continue to spur the industry's growth, and new developments are on the horizon. So where are we today AND are we headed tomorrow?

Join Steven Polk as he kicks off our Post-Construction Stormwater BMPs Master Class Series with an introduction to post-construction stormwater management, including: its past and present regulations (e.g., Clean Water Act, NPDES, MS4s, etc.), the developing approaches and technologies (e.g., green infrastructure, LID), where we're headed in the future, AND what this means for you.

In this webcast, we'll explore our rapidly evolving stormwater industry –past, present, and what's in store for the future. Polk will begin our discussion with the evolution of stormwater management from the Clean Water Act (CWA) to the current National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) MS4 regulations and amendments. We'll then take a look at the current regulations – when they apply, what agency has jurisdiction, and what you need to do to meet them on your site. Polk will also outline the development of post-construction stormwater BMPS with a focused look at the evolution and integration of Green Infrastructure and Low Impact Development (LID), and how you can integrate these at your site. We'll take a look at when, where, and why stormwater treatment is required through a series of real-world examples, how you can identify these needs, and how to begin selection and implementation. And finally, we'll wrap up the discussion with a look at where post-construction stormwater BMPs and regulations are headed in the future and how you can prepare your sites.
