Online - Webinar
Sept. 20, 2017
2:00pm - 3:30pm Eastern Time
TRB will conduct a webinar that features research from the National Cooperative Highway Research Program (NCHRP) Report 840: A Watershed Approach to Mitigating Stormwater Impacts.
The webinar will examine a decision-making framework designed to help state Departments of Transportation (DOTs) identify and implement cost-effective and environmentally-friendly water quality solutions for stormwater impacts. Presenters will discuss the ways state DOTs are currently exploring approaches and regulatory mechanisms to achieve compliance with water quality permits through watershed-based total maximum daily load limitations. They will also provide an update on the development of a toolbox of water quality solutions for stormwater impacts.
- Neil Weinstein, The Low Impact Development Center, Inc.
- Scott Struck, Geosyntec Consultants
- Emily Clifton, The Low Impact Development Center, Inc.
The first 60 minutes of the webinar will be for presentations and the final 30 minutes will be reserved for audience questions. The Registered Continuing Education Program (RCEP) categorizes this webinar activity as relating to health, safety, and welfare including core technical.
- Overview of NCHRP
- How state Departments of Transportation can employ a watershed-based approach to meeting stormwater mitigation requirements
- Development of toolbox of water quality solutions
- Case studies
- Question and answer session
At the end of this webinar, participants will be able to:
- Understand how to develop a watershed-based approach to stormwater management
- Identify key issues and data sources
- Understand how to use the toolbox of water quality solutions
- Describe mitigation approaches for cutting-edge issues, such as thermal pollution and providing ecosystem services
A certificate for 1.5 Professional Development Hours (PDHs) will be provided to Professional Engineers (PEs) who register and attend the webinar as an individual. For groups, only the person that registers and attends the session will receive a PDH certificate. Certificates of Completion will be issued only to individuals who register for and attend the entire webinar session. Individuals registered as Florida PEs are no longer required to email TRB with your license number to report your attendance. Instead, please use your certificate that TRB provides through RCEP.net as verification of your attendance to the Florida Board of Professional Engineers. Please check with your licensing board to ensure that TRB webinar PDHs are approved by your board.
