Stormwater Management Overview
Thursday, 09/28/2017 (09:00 AM - 03:30 PM)

Review the present and future standards with respect to low-impact development and green infrastructure stormwater management. UNH Stormwater Center (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 36 different BMPs ranging from conventional ponds to manufactured subsurface filters to broad array of low-impact development (or green infrastructure) practices. Testing results and technology demonstrations from the UNHSC field research facility contribute to 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. Participants will be able to use information to understand state and federal guidelines and make design recommendations to maximize project success.

 

This workshop is a requirement for the Stormwater Management Certificate. You do not need to be enrolled in the certificate program to take this course.
