APA-PA’s Central Section is hosting a full day workshop May 18th in Harrisburg on various aspects of stormwater management. Attendees will learn why stormwater regulations have continued to evolve, how one county is leading a successful collaborative regional effort to reduce the cost of regulatory compliance, and what a municipality can expect if EPA comes knocking. A presentation on stormwater best management practices will demonstrate how implementation of such projects can maximize both environmental and economic returns. Additionally, a municipality and its consultant will share their experience with creating a stormwater authority to address planning, funding, design, implementation, and maintenance of stormwater infrastructure. Registration details are on the attachment.
