Event to address stormwater pollution prevention
StormCon, dedicated to the education and advancement of stormwater pollution prevention, is preparing to address what many consider a critical environmental issue.
The annual conference and exhibition will host thousands of participants, exhibitors, educators and spectators from Aug. 27-31 in Seattle.
Largely driven by urban development, stormwater runoff is quickly becoming the greatest threat to water quality, officials said in a release. To protect public health, safety and water supplies, stormwater pollution prevention is a top priority at StormCon 2017.
From municipal, government and EPA officials and regulators, to planners, consultants and researchers, this year's event is geared toward the entire scope of water-quality professionals to address and spread awareness of this critical issue.
A variety of CEU-accredited training courses focusing on stormwater pollution prevention are available.
Focusing on effective design, review, implementation and/or inspection of stormwater pollution prevention plans (SWPPPs) and monitoring programs, pre-conference certification courses available include certified erosion, sediment and stormwater inspector.
An interactive expert panel discussion, called Stormwater Infrastructure Management - A Management Perspective, will be offered on Aug. 31, focusing on a variety of topics related to stormwater pollution prevention and drainage infrastructure.
The StormCon Program Guide outlines available pre-conference and conference training and certification courses, exhibit hall and networking events, as well as accommodations and sightseeing opportunities.
Registration is open, but space is limited for those interested in training, getting certified or exhibiting next-generation solutions.
