Stormwater BMP Technology Demonstration Workshops
This workshop provides a general overview of the present and future standards with respect to 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.
What will the workshops cover?
The performance, cost, suitability, operations, and maintenance issues associated with different stormwater management unit processes.
What is the learning format?
Field facility tour followed by a working lunch. Notes will be provided.
Who should attend?
Elected officials, appointed officials, town administrators, engineers, land planners, landscape architects, natural resource managers.
Where are the workshops?
The workshops begin and end at the Center's field facility. There are NO BATHROOMS at this field facility. After a two-hour field visit the attendees will move by bus to a classroom for lunch and discussions.
What is the workshop schedule?
|9:00-11:30||Site Tour meeting at facility located at the West Edge Parking Lot|
|11:40||Bus to Gregg Hall|
||Bus back to West Edge|
