Presented by the Washington Stormwater Center, Stormwater Talks is a series of webinars, each taking place at the noon hour, focusing on various municipal stormwater topics. Each session features a 45-50 minute presentation, followed by a 10-15 minute live Q&A with the presenter(s).

These presentations offer the opportunity to hear from stormwater professionals across the state of Washington as they share lessons learned through their own programs and projects. Each features relevant topics on research, new technology, and MS4 permit issues presented by stormwater professionals and permittees.
