National Water Pollution Conference to Include Post-Fire Watershed Protection, Green Infrastructure, and Erosion & Sediment Control Courses
DENVER, July 18, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — StormCon, the North American Surface Water Quality Conference & Expo, announced earlier this week an expanded educational lineup that includes a full day Post-Fire Watershed Protection Course and separate tracks addressing Green Infrastructure, Water-Quality Monitoring, Erosion & Sediment Control and Stormwater Program Management. This increases the number of conference tracks and separate educational sessions to an unprecedented array of choices for Stormwater and Water Quality professionals in attendance.
Now in its 11th year, StormCon brings together leading authorities on stormwater and surface water to explore the newest water pollution prevention and mitigation technologies and discuss the strategies that are most effective in minimizing surface-water pollution. With NPDES regulatory compliance a primary focus, StormCon unites commercial property executives, watershed managers, builders and contractors, government officials, inspectors, engineers, designers, regulators, enforcement officials, planners, consultants, researchers, educators, EPA officials, and other water-quality professionals under one roof.
The expanded offerings now include “Fire & Rain: Rapid Assessment and Emergency Mitigation Measures Following Wildfires.” This is a great opportunity to learn firsthand from those who have performed vital roles in emergency post-fire efforts throughout the western states. If your community is potentially impacted by wildfires, do not miss this special course. See details at http://www.stormcon.com/fireandrain.htm
