Learn the fundamental elements of industrial stormwater management including general permit requirements and enforcement; creating a Stormwater Pollution Control Plan (SWPCP); proper sampling techniques; reporting methods; and the most common Best Management Practices (BMPs) for industrial sites, such as source control and site maintenance.
Deniz Varcin, Maul Foster & Alongi, Inc.
Sarah Glathar, Farallon Consulting LLC Brooke Harmon, Maul Foster & Alongi, Inc. Christine Nancarrow, Pacific Stormwater
Gain a thorough understanding of the basic elements of construction stormwater management including general permit requirements and enforcement; creating an Erosion and Sediment Control Plan (ESCP); proper sampling techniques; and the most common Best Management Practices (BMPs) in construction settings.
Skip Haak, PBS Engineering and Environmental Inc.
Blair Edwards, Oregon Department of Environmental Quality Melissa Hurley, Cascade Geosynthetics Kham Slater, City of Corvallis
Best Management Practices, or BMPs, are practices, procedures, and methods used to prevent pollution in stormwater discharge and are most effective as key components of a comprehensive Stormwater Pollution Control Plan, or SWPCP. Learn how BMPs are selected; how they’re integrated into a SWPCP; and the vital role they play in helping industrial facilities meet effluent and concentration benchmarks and reach permit compliance.
Traci Rohde, Farallon Consulting LLC
Maria Isabel Carvajal, Gullywasher Nathan Williams, Farallon Consulting LLC
Many industrial facilities are facing source control challenges that are not readily manageable with conventional BMPs. Hear examples of how some facilities are evaluating and treating these unique challenges with measures that go beyond conventional BMPs.
James Raspen, PCC Structurals, Inc.
Joe Kalmar, Landau Associates, Inc. Siobhan Kennedy, Sprung Structures Phillip Kolander, Gunderson
Many facilities are facing challenges with common pollutants of concern that are manageable with conventional treatment and BMPs. Hear how permittees are evaluating and treating these typical pollutants including copper, zinc, pesticides, oil and grease, and microbes like fecal coliform and E. coli.
Stacy Hibbard, City of Portland Bureau of Environmental Services
Dan Joseph, Landau Associates, Inc. Jennifer Schmitz, Clear Water Services
Expert practitioners will present an informative set of case studies that illustrate successful treatment of varied, challenging, and problematic pollutants in industrial settings. Panelists will address site conditions; contaminant characterization; treatment selection process and alternatives; installation and operational results, and O&M costs.
Melody Adams, Waste Management
Ian Maguire, GeoEngineers, Inc. Sam Petrie, Clear Creek Systems, Inc. Brian Tino, Maul Foster & Alongi, Inc.
An exploration of integrated systems planning concepts, strategies, and applications which promote and support multi-disciplinary solutions to adequately protect natural resources in the face of societal challenges due to rapid urbanization and the impacts of climate change.
Tammie Wilson, Clean Water Services
Carol Murdock, Clean Water Services Clara Olson, Parametrix John Phillips, Water Environment Federation Integrated Planning Task Force
By capturing runoff close to where it falls, Green Infrastructure and Low Impact Development installations naturally reduce runoff volumes, peak flow rates, and the amount of pollutants leaving developed sites. Municipalities oversee operation and maintenance of stormwater management facilities on private property to ensure proper function. Hear from municipal staff on how to develop a private facility inspection program, how to train landscape contractors, common maintenance issues with private stormwater facilities and design considerations that impact long term maintenance.
Jennie Morgan, Rogue Valley Sewer Services
Karen Bromley, City of Gresham Jesse Dillow, City of Salem Tony Gilbertson, Clean Water Services
Municipalities are upgrading existing infrastructure and connecting new systems to bolster resiliency for heavy weather events and increased storm flows. Panelists will share their processes, recommendations, and lessons learned from a range of projects that have helped them respond to the demand for increased capacity.
John Phillips, Parametrix
Leah Johanson, Clackamas County Water Environment Services Anne MacDonald, Clear Water Services Jen Murphy, Parametrix
Learn about creative and resourceful funding strategies to support the implementation of stormwater management projects.
Justin Green, Justin B. Green Consulting
Yvana Hrovat, Haley & Aldrich, Inc. Chris Marko, Oregon Department of Environmental Quality
Delve into the emerging concept of regional stormwater management facilities, whose financial and regulatory drivers are related to but often different from more piecemeal approaches. Through an overview presentation and several case studies, panelists will highlight different types of facilities (pumped treatment, stream restoration, etc) that serve various needs (stormwater quality, flood control and ecological requirements, among others) and will touch on ideas like spacemaking/placemaking, retrofitting, basin planning, benchmark monitoring, and newly available technologies. In the end, the facilities are often regarded as highly desirable assets, and you may end up asking yourself, “How do I get me one of those?”
Benjamin Boice, Contech Engineered Solutions LLC
Mark Boguslawski, City of Beaverton Paul Fendt, Parametrix Torrey Lindbo, City of Gresham Seth Sokol, Parametrix
An in-depth discussion of trending legal issues related to stormwater management. Topics will include implications of the County of Maui decision; an update on stormwater litigation in Oregon; enforcement and regulatory interpretations of recently issued permits; and perspectives on how attorneys, engineers, and technical staff manage a changing legal framework when implementing stormwater management projects. Bring your comments and questions for our experts and join the conversation!
