Engineers, planners, water resource professionals, government representatives, land development professionals, and watershed and conservation groups are encouraged to attend the 2009 Pennsylvania Stormwater Management Symposium to be held October 14-15 at Villanova University.
The purpose of the symposium is to advance the knowledge and understanding of sustainable stormwater management for those dealing in all aspects of planning, design, implementation and regulatory compliance. A workshop for non-engineers will be held in conjunction with the symposium. This is the seventh symposium on stormwater issues that has been held at Villanova.
DEP Deputy Secretary for Water Management John Hines and DEP’s Director of the Bureau of Watershed Management Glenn Rider will address the symposium in addition to speakers from both the private and the public sector.
In addition to the symposium, a municipal workshop will be held for local government representatives that features practical information and strategies for dealing with stormwater runoff. Subjects include stormwater fundamentals, a look at inspection and infiltration testing, and runoff controls and maintenance.
