Webcast: Series 2: Implementing TMDLs


Center for Watershed Protection – October 8 and November 12, 2014

The Center for Watershed Protection will offer a Webcast Series: Implementing TMDLs on October 8 and November 12, 2014 from 1:00-3:00 p.m. EST. Regional and local TMDLs are increasingly driving the selection and implementation of BMPs. Across the country, there is a tremendous need for communities to understand which BMPs can be used, how much pollutant removal credit they receive and at what cost. Many lessons have been learned from places where implementation has been progressing. This two-part series will focus on a couple of key elements of TMDL planning and implementation.

October 8, 2014: Series 2, Session 1: Local TMDLs & Regional/River Basin TMDLs: A Happy Engagement or a Shotgun Wedding?

November 12, 2014: Series 2, Session 2: Retrofitting Existing Stormwater Ponds & Basins

Webcast: How To Pick The Right Vegetation for Bioretention & Its Cousins


Center for Watershed Protection – June 11, 2014

The Center for Watershed Protection will offer a Webcast: How To Pick The Right Vegetation for Bioretention & Its Cousins on June 11, 2014 from 1:00-3:00 p.m. EST. Bioretention and its various cousins (rain gardens, bioswales, street bioretention, stormwater planters) are becoming popular and widespread practices around the country and the world. Putting the “bio” into bioretention designs is of course important, but sometimes not the major focus of the design process. However, in the long-run, it is vegetation that everyone sees and that constitutes perhaps the major maintenance task. The webcast will provide guidance on how to design with long-term maintenance in mind, and how choices of vegetation can influence aesthetics, performance, community understanding and acceptance, the provision of multiple benefits, and (importantly), maintenance budgets. We will also address the hot issue of whether to include trees in bioretention planting plans. For more information and to register, click here.

 
In-Lieu Fee Mitigation Training Webinar Series


Environmental Law Institute – March 28, 2014

In-Lieu Fee Mitigation Training Webinar Series - Credit Determination will be held by the Environmental Law Institute on March 28, 2014 from 12:00 p.m.-1:30 p.m. Approved mitigation plans must include a description of the number of credits to be provided at a mitigation site, including a brief explanation of the rationale for this determination. (See §332.4(c)(6)) The federal compensatory mitigation regulations define the term “credit” as “a unit of measure (e.g., a functional or areal measure or other suitable metric) representing the accrual or attainment of aquatic functions at a compensatory mitigation site.  The measure of aquatic functions is based on the resources restored, established, enhanced, or preserved.”  33 C.F.R. § 332.2.  For this webinar, Justin Hammonds (USACE, Savannah District) will discuss credit determination methodologies, focusing on the stream credit determination methodology employed by the Savannah District. Then, Ruth Ladd (USACE, New England District) will discuss crediting for preservation and non-aquatic resources and Nicole Maness (Willamette Partnership) will present Willamette Partnership’s Ecosystem Credit Accounting System. Finally, Will Harman (Stream Mechanics) will discuss the top issues to consider when determining stream credits.

Webcast: Stream Restoration as a Pollutant Reduction Strategy


Center for Watershed Protection – September 10, 2014

The Center for Watershed Protection will offer a Webcast: Stream Restoration as a Pollutant Reduction Strategy on September 10, 2014 from 1:00-3:00 p.m. EST. Stream restoration has been used for many years and with various objectives and outcomes. Increasingly, it has become important to quantify the various benefits of practices, such as stream restoration. However, the science behind this quantification of benefits can be tricky, especially for pollutant reduction performance. Several updated studies and performance evaluation techniques make this more accessible. This webcast will explore several protocols to quantify and verify the benefits of stream restoration for pollutants such as sediment and nutrients over time. For more information, click here.

 
Webcast: Series 1: The Life of a Stormwater Practice


Center for Watershed Protection – March 12, Apil 9, May 21, 2014

The Center for Watershed Protection will hold a Webcast: Series 1: The Life of a Stormwater Practice on March 12, April 9, May 21 from 1:00-3:00 p.m. This series will explore all the elements that promote successful implementation of stormwater management best management practices (BMPs). The types of BMPs used in a community starts with the local development and stormwater codes. Individual BMPs first come into focus during the design process. Much of the ultimate success of a BMP depends on what occurs in the field during initial installation of the practice. Finally, long-term maintenance must be managed to maintain the original function, performance, and value of the BMP.

March 12, 2014: Series 1, Session 1: The Role of Local Codes

April 9, 2014: Series 1, Session 2: Design & Construction of BMPs

May 21, 2014: Series 1, Session 3: BMP Maintenance
