Reminder: PA State Assn. Of Township Supervisors Virtual Stormwater Conference Oct. 20 & 21, Oct. 27 & 28

PA State Association of Township Supervisors is hosting a virtual MS4 Great Ideas Stormwater Conference on October 20 & 21 (Policy Track) and October 27& 28 (Technical Track).

Each two-day event starts at 9:00 a.m. and will conclude by noon.

Policy Track

For those with managerial and administrative stormwater responsibilities, you will want to select the “Policy” track for presentations such as how to:

-- Create effective partnerships with other municipalities and private stakeholders to improve compliance and lower overall costs;

-- Develop joint municipal pollutant reduction plans (PRPs) that can lower the participating municipalities’ overall costs;

-- Implement a rural stormwater fee to help farmers meet their stormwater responsibilities at the lowest cost; and

-- Balance the construction of grey and green infrastructure projects for cost and appearance reasons.

Technical Track

If you are a consulting engineer or a member of a municipal operations staff, you will want to select the “Technical” track for presentations such as how to:

-- Develop a realistic green infrastructure installation plan that your municipal road crew and public works departments can strategically implement to reduce flooding and improve stormwater quality

-- Calculate the line-item costs of installing, operating, and maintaining the BMPs your municipality will need to develop a realistic municipal stormwater budget

-- Work with private landowners to evaluate and design BMPs that they can install to further help your municipality achieve cost-effective compliance

-- Use the available drainage ways, infiltration areas, and other water resources that nature has already given you (economic ecology)

-- Locate the best places to do stream corridor restoration, one of the more cost-effective practices to reduce nutrient and sediment loads

The registration fee is $125 per track and includes a certificate of attendance and conference materials.
