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.

Gain a thorough understanding of the basic elements of construction stormwater management including general permit requirements and enforcement; creating a Stormwater Pollution Control Plan (SWPCP); proper sampling techniques; and the most common Best Management Practices (BMPs) in construction settings.
A Tier One Corrective Action Report must be prepared if site conditions indicate that the Stormwater Pollution Control Plan (SWPCP) is not being followed and sampling confirms that effluent benchmarks have been exceeded or if visual observations show evidence of stormwater pollution. Hear from experts responding to these Tier One corrective actions about the compliance timeline, volume reduction, treatment options, system effectiveness, and long-term strategies for staying out of trouble.
This session will go beyond what is typically understood through guidance design manuals or treatment BMP specifications by sharing real-world case studies and hands-on experience to be used by designers and end-users alike. Whether you are looking to get more out of your existing treatment BMPs, or implementing new treatment BMPs, participate in a candid discussion on how to make common treatment BMPs more effective at industrial sites.

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.

Infiltration is a great way to manage stormwater, but it doesn’t work everywhere and poor planning, testing, analysis, and design can lead to failed infiltration systems. Speakers will present a holistic process for planning infiltration systems, then dive into the details on field testing and using test information to support design.

Now that infiltration has become a more common stormwater management strategy, much is being learned about the broad range of systems and installations. Panelists will present a set of case studies that delve into site assessment; system design; BMPs (best management practices); monitoring of water quality and quantity; and maintenance for optimal performance.

Per- and polyfluoroalkyl (PFAS) substances, sometimes referred to as “forever chemicals”, are a category of thousands of man-made chemicals (including PFOS, PFOA and GenX). These chemicals don’t break down and can accumulate over time, so their presence can be extremely persistent in the environment. Amid mounting health concerns, regulations moved swiftly in 2020 and are expected to continue in 2021 with both state-level and EPA rulemaking in progress. Speakers will discuss methods for treating PFAS in stormwater applications, including pre-treatment, activated carbon, ion exchange, and ozofractionation.

Clean Water Act lawsuits brought by citizen groups continue to be an effective enforcement tool for stormwater permit compliance. What triggers a Third-Party lawsuit? How does it begin and what’s its life cycle once it’s in motion? Join our panel of regulators and industry representatives as they shed light on causes, timing, and what you can expect if you receive a Notice of Intent (NOI).
