Stormwater Best Management Practices Technology Demonstration Workshop
(09:00 AM - 02:00 PM)

This workshop provides a general overview of the present and future standards of stormwater management. UNHSC research addresses the overall performance and effectiveness of a variety of stormwater Best Management Practices (BMPs) to control water quantity and treat water quality. To date the UNHSC has researched over 24 different BMPs ranging from conventional ponds to manufactured subsurface filters to broad array of Low Impact Development (or Green Infrastructure) practices.

 

In August of 2004, the UNHSC field research facility came online. This field research facility serves as both a site for testing stormwater treatment processes as well as for technology demonstrations. The testing results and technology demonstrations are meant to assist in the planning, design, and implementation of stormwater management strategies. Topics covered include water quantity control (peak flow reduction, system lag time, and potential for infiltration), water quality treatment effectiveness (sediment, nutrients, metals, hydrocarbons, and/or microorganisms), as well as brief overviews of emergent topics such as system maintenance, thermal buffering, and cold climate related issues.

Farm Direct: Co-operative Marketing and Delivery
(09:30 AM - 02:00 PM)

The demand for local food has reached restaurants, schools and hospitals, but efficient systems for ordering and delivery of consistent sales are still developing.  How can farmers take advantage of this marketing opportunity? What strategies will enable farmers to work together to market, sell and deliver their products directly to large customers? 

 

This seminar explores these issues, using North Country Farmers’ Co-op (NCF) as a template.  NCF organizer Julie Moran and Chef Matt Houghton will share their experiences over the past six years in creating and expanding NCF. The NCF model can be used as a stepping stone for others to meet the growing demand for locally produced food.
