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

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
  • Balance the construction of grey and green infrastructure projects for cost and appearance reasons
  • Prepare for the next MS4 NPDES permit cycle, which will begin in 2023
