Education & Outreach Workshop
Methods for Developing, Implementing, and Evaluating Effective E&O Programs
Aimee Navickis-Brasch, HDR; Amanda Hess, Spokane County; Abbey Stockwell, Ecology; Janet Geer, City of Bothell; Jessica Shaw, City of Wenatchee; Mary Rabourn, King County; Tiffany O’Dell, Pierce County
Stormwater E&O programs strive to increase public awareness and encourage behavior change that will lead to improved water quality. However, achieving these goals and producing measureable results that demonstrate the effectiveness of E&O programs is challenging. This workshop will focus on providing attendees with information and examples that will assist them in developing and implementing targeted E&O programs as well as methods for measuring the impact of the program. The presentations during this workshop will focus on:
Stormwater Manual Training Workshop
Doug Howie, Department of Ecology
This workshop will cover the 9 Minimum Requirements in the Stormwater Management Manual for Western Washington (SWMMWW) including:
The training is presented from the point of view of a typical engineer who is developing the Stormwater Site Plan and looking at the decisions that he/she must make (from site assessment, through to final design and plan submission) with regards to New/Redevelopment.
Stormwater BMP Infiltration Testing Workshop
Determining Stormwater BMP Infiltration Rates: Requirements, Approaches, Emerging Methods, and Current Research
Erick Fitzpatrick, AHBL; John Knutsen, Aspect; Scott Kindred, Kindred Hydro; Tony Allen, WSDOT; Tom Atkins, Aspect; Craig Doberstein, CPD Solutions; Aimee Navickis-Brasch, HDR
Determining representative infiltration rates for a project site is critical to BMP design, particularly when meeting Ecology requirements related to low impact development and onsite management of stormwater runoff. This workshop will provide attendees with a broad understanding of the requirements for determining infiltration rates; as well as approaches, emerging methods, and current research. The presentations during this workshop will focus on:
