It’s time for some March Madness! With several teams having
already punched their tickets to the Big Dance, I had to let Tom know that I’d
be leaving to go work for Warren Buffett so I can cash in on the $1 million annual
payout for correctly guessing the Sweet 16.
Kidding of course! How could I walk away, especially in the
middle of an even bigger competition – The 2017 BUBBAs! Voting is open and you
only have a few more days to cast your vote. Also, there are a ton of super
cool events coming up that you should register for. Keep reading for all the
March 15th: User’s Guide to BMPs in the Chesapeake Bay
This extended webcast will cover a wide range of topics in order to provide a comprehensive overview of how to achieve cost-effective pollutant reductions by finding the practices that work best in your community.
The webcast will teach the essentials of stormwater retrofits, stream restoration, urban nutrient management, tree canopy, street cleaning, runoff reduction and stormwater treatment practices, fixing illicit discharges and more.

March 30th: New Crediting
Approaches: Impervious Cover Disconnection to Amended Soils, and CMAC
Planners and implementers are always looking for new ways to
earn credit towards reducing nutrient and sediment loads. This webinar looks at
two new approaches that have been recently approved by the Chesapeake Bay Program
The Impervious Cover Disconnections to Amended Soils BMP
Expert Panel was convened in 2015 to assess the nutrient and sediment
reductions that can be achieved by directing or otherwise spreading stormwater
from impervious cover of existing development (not new or re-development) to an
acceptable area of pervious cover where it may be effectively stored and
infiltrated into the soil.
Continuous Monitoring and Adaptive Control (CMAC)
technologies are a BMP enhancement to stormwater facilities that directly monitor
performance and make automated and predictive control decisions to actively
manage stormwater storage and flows.
In this webcast, you will hear about how these approaches
work, review several case studies, and learn how to earn credit for these new
Center For Watershed Protection National Conference
Please join our friends at the
Center for Watershed Protection for the 2017 National Watershed and Stormwater
Conference. The conference will consist
of national webcasts and feature special sessions focused on the future of
urban stormwater management, the Chesapeake Bay TMDL 2017 midpoint assessment,
Phase III WIPs, alternative TMDLs (e.g., stream temperature, chlorides), and
trading programs. As an added bonus, our very own Tom Schueler will be leading
a session on the Future of Stormwater Management!
