    Chesapeake WEA Stormwater Seminar – Call for Speakers

    water

    Stormwater Seminar Call for Speakers 

    May 18, 2017

    Maritime Institute of Technology and Graduate Studies (MITAGS)

    692 Maritime Boulevard, Linthicum Heights, MD 21090

    Lessons Learned in Restoration and Program Implementation: From Program Startup to Innovations in BMP Design

    Conference Overview

    The CWEA Spring Stormwater Seminar, is presented to allow peer-to-peer information exchange opportunities for representatives of regulated stormwater programs.  The seminar will follow two tracks:
    Stormwater NPDES Program Start Up

    Innovations in BMP Design

    Track 1: Stormwater NPDES Program Start Up

    This track will consist of up to seven 30-minute sessions on specific lessons learned as part of MS4 or other stormwater National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) permit-required program implementation.  If you manage permit compliance programs, watershed restoration or other Capital Improvement Project (CIP) programs, or otherwise provide support to NPDES compliance programs, we’d like to hear your lessons learned! Topic examples include: 

    Establishing a BMP Database
    Calculating Impervious Cover Baseline and Restoration Requirement
    Funding for MS4 Programs
    Building Capacity – Staff Resources, Contract Capacity, SOPs, etc.
    Building Internal and Stakeholder Support
    Managing and Tracking CIP Delivery

    Track 2:  Innovations in Stormwater BMP Design

    MS4s have been implementing stormwater BMPs to meet Chesapeake Bay TMDL requirements. Over the years, based on BMP performance and lessons learned, engineers have incorporated new techniques and design features to address a myriad of factors such as:

    maximizing treatment of existing, untreated impervious surfaces
    overcoming site constraints
    addressing resident concerns
    addressing multi-functions (e.g., community amenity and stormwater treatment)
    improving BMP performance
    improving long-term reliability
    reducing maintenance requirements
    reducing implementation cost
    integrating various BMPs in a watershed through optimization processes to maximize performance, and achieve stormwater quantity and quality goals in a cost-effective manner

    This track will consist of up to seven 30-minute sessions that share lessons learned and case studies surrounding the use of creative approaches and innovations in BMP designs to help meet Chesapeake Bay TMDL requirements. 
    Abstract Submittal and Information

    Authors shall submit an abstract (500 words maximum) concisely describing their project or program and how seminar participants can benefit from it. All abstracts must be received by March 30, 2017. Notice of acceptance/rejection is scheduled for April 10, 2017. Abstract submittals shall include:

    Title
    Track (1 or 2)
    Description of lesson(s) learned to be presented
