Training/Webinar:Featured Webinar Balancing the Water Budget of a Stormwater Treatment Practice - Thursday, June 15 (11:00am)

Featured Webinar
Balancing the Water Budget of a
Stormwater Treatment Practice

June 15th   |   1 PDH / 0.1 CEU

The performance of stormwater treatment practices is often measured by monitoring the response of the practice to natural rainfall and runoff events. For accurate performance calculations, it is essential to correctly measure the movement of water through the treatment practice. Accounting for all the inputs, outputs, and storage within a treatment practice is called balancing the water budget, and just like cash, it's important to count every drop.

Join returning speaker Andrew Erickson, M.S., P.E. as we walk step-by-step through specific techniques, methods, and devices to measure or estimate the water budget components in a stormwater treatment practice.

The Evolution of Stormwater

Generally for a stormwater monitoring program, the guidance provided in this online training webinar will cover open channel flow (weirs, flumes, AV meters); pipe/conduit flow; infiltration measurements, rainfall measurements, and how to handle evapotranspiration. Each of these components has uncertainty, but a simple understanding of the limitations can go a long way in reducing this uncertainty and improving accuracy. Erickson will describe specific devices (e.g., double ring infiltrometer, H Flumes, etc.) as well as general methods (v-notch weir equations) with examples for how these were used in field monitoring or measurement of water budget components.

This webinar will be especially useful for any professional that is measuring stormwater in the field (i.e., monitoring) because without accurate flow or water budget measurements, water quality calculations such as load reductions are useless.
