Half-Day Workshops

HalfDay
Day one of the Washington State Municipal Stormwater Conference consisted of four workshops.

The powerpoints presentations are offered as pdfs and as compressed (zip) documents to account for file size limitations that may exist in some networks.

Workshop 1

Illicit Connection and Illicit Discharge (IC/ID) Field Screening and Source Tracing Guidance Manual Training
Presented by Rebecca Dugopolski (Herrera Environmental Consultants)
The Illicit Connection and Illicit Discharge (IC/ID) Field Screening and Source Tracing workshop provides a brief overview of the content of the Washington State Illicit Connection and Illicit Discharge (IC/ID) Field Screening and Source Tracing Guidance Manual. This popular training was offered at several locations around the state last year to provide hands-on demonstrations and manual training. To accommodate many who could not attend last year, we are offering it again during the first half day of the conference.

Workshop 2

LID Plan Review: Tools and Lessons From Ecology and Phase I Permittees
Presented by Doug Howie (Department of Ecology), Mark Wilgus (King County), Susie Larson (City of Seattle), Ede Courtenay (City of Seattle), Mieke Hoppin (City of Tacoma), Corey Newton (City of Tacoma)
This included an Ecology-led introduction to the details of revisions to Minimum Requirement #5, as well as overall submittal guidance from Ecology’s stormwater manual. Representatives from Phase I jurisdictions discussed lessons and tools regarding how they are approaching the new aspects of MR#5, and what they’re doing internally to facilitate associated development plan review. This may include issues with communication and politics as well as general technical issues related to Phase I's recent code/manual update process related to MR#5. Also discussed will be tools developed by Phase I jurisdictions that others may be able to use or mimic (e.g., checklists, submittal forms, templates, etc.). The workshop did not go into the details of specific BMP designs and plan review considerations, but will focus on larger internal challenges faced by municipal stormwater staff and plan review staff.

Workshop 3

Successful Source Control through Behavior Change
Presented by Tiffany Odell (Pierce County), Dave Ward (Puget Sound Partnership)
Nonpoint pollution starts with people. Whether you’re a stormwater manager, engineer, program director or outreach professional, you need to understand what it takes to motivate source control among your residents. Like engineered solutions, source control through behavior change applies science and research to achieve desired outcomes. Successful behavior-change programs employ behavioral science, marketing, and rigorous evaluation. This session focused on Social Marketing as a method to influence behaviors for pollution reduction. It emphasized successful programs and will walk through eight specific criteria that managers can use to gauge the effectiveness of their programs.

Workshop 4

Roads and Highways: Discussions and Presentations on High-Priority Topics
Presented by Mark Maurer (WSDOT), Aimee Navickis-Brasch (Gonzaga University), Curtis M. Nickerson and Vijaya Lakshmi Tummala (CARDNO), Michael O'Neil P.E. (King County Department of Transportation)
The session grew out of the work started by the statewide Stormwater Working Group’s Roads and Highways Subgroup and included presentations and discussions on high-priority topics now facing roads and highways managers and staff. Topics and discussion points were developed through a group survey that helped to focus the content of the session.
