About The Webcast: If you are an MS4 manager, are you ready to jump up and say, “Come on down and audit my MS4!” or will it be a case of “I’m sorry you must have the wrong number?” Audits are, by nature, a tense undertaking, but they can also have benefits for the various parties. Indeed, EPA and its regional offices are ramping up efforts to conduct audits of both Phase 1 and Phase 2 MS4 communities. Preparing for and doing well in an audit is not just a matter of “passing the test,” but actually improving your program and doing a better job of protecting your receiving waters. In this webcast, you’ll learn from experts in the field that do audits or went through an audit. Our speakers will provide their insights and tips for what to expect before, during and after the audit, how to best prepare your team for an audit and how to get the most out of the experience. Finding cost-effective stormwater retrofits in urban landscapes can be challenging and demands “staying with the problem.” In addition to all the usual suspects of limited space, utilities, disturbed soils, and expensive real-estate, it is often hard to design these retrofits with enough storage to capture the desired rainfall depth from the drainage area. Well. . .you should probably know how technologies that were basically unavailable five years ago can help you to design and implement “smart” retrofits. This is not the science fiction of stormwater, but some very interesting innovations in the use of the Internet, sensors, and other devices that can enhance rainfall capture and treatment within very limited footprints.
