Southwestern PA Commission Water Resource Center May Schedule Of Webinars

Southwestern PA Commission Water Resource Center will hold three stormwater, flooding and natural hazard planning webinars in May.  Here’s the schedule--

May 5 - Stormwater & Flooding

This webinar explores the relationship between stormwater runoff and flooding, and discusses how these two interrelated things have been treated as separate entities in the past. 

The topic will review related existing legislation and programs, areas for improvement, stormwater runoff, its various components, and problems associated with it, the floodplain and floodway, analysis tools, and management measures. 

The webinar will be held from Noon to 1:00 p.m.

To register, please contact Linda Duffy

May 11 - National Risk Index For Natural Hazards

This webinar will take a close look at the Federal Emergency Management Agency National Risk Index. The index is a new online mapping application that identifies the communities that face the most risk from 18 identified natural hazards. 

Using geographic information system services, the index provides interactive web maps created at the county and census tract level for use in custom analyses. With this data, researchers can visualize natural hazard risk metrics, as well as expected annual losses, social vulnerabilities, and community resilience. 

Webinar participants will learn more about the motivation and methodology for creating the index, while also having an opportunity to visualize U.S. locations with the most and least risk of natural hazards.

May 19 - MS4 Stormwater Refresher

Many municipalities continue to struggle to understand the increasing regulation and changes applied to stormwater management. 

Others are struggling with finding funding to comply with this regulation, particularly if they have aging infrastructure in need of repair or replacement. 

This refresher course will help you understand what current regulations require municipalities to do and unique funding opportunities available for those compliance efforts.

This webinar will be held Noon to 1:00 p.m.
