Simplifying Stormwater Detention Design With Precast Concrete & Hydrologic Modeling

July 14, 2015

Increasingly, stormwater management for buildings and facilities is going underground. Offering smaller footprints, larger stormwater capture, and better flow mitigation, many facilities are looking to incorporate underground precast stormwater detention/retention systems at their sites to meet NPDES MS4 permit and Low Impact Development (LID) requirements while controlling erosion. But…how do you know what type of system is best for you AND how can you accurately size and design a system for your stormwater and sediment runoff reduction needs?

Join Laddie Fromelius and Doug Beyerlein, P.E. for a FREE webinar exploring underground precast concrete modular stormwater detention/retention systems; their design, installation, and maintenance best practices; and how you can design your system—using hydrologic and hydraulic modeling—to meet your erosion control needs, stormwater management, NPDES MS4, and Low Impact Development (LID) requirements.

This webinar will be available live on Thursday, August 20th, 2015, 11:00 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. PDT / 2:00 p.m. – 3:30 p.m. EDT, and available on-demand after the live event. Register for the event by clicking the button below.

In this webinar, we’ll explore precast concrete solutions for underground stormwater storage AND how you can use hydrologic and hydraulic stormwater modeling to design a system to fit your site. Within this discussion, we’ll examine how precast stormwater detention/retention systems work, and their key considerations, elements, and advantages. Fromelius will outline the design, installation, and maintenance best practices for underground precast stormwater detention/retention systems, and how you can apply these to your site to maximize your storage capacity, mitigate your peak flow, and meet EPA recommendations. While discussing stormwater storage, Fromelius and Beyerlein will cover the principles of hydrology and hydraulic modeling and how you can use a stormwater modeling program to accurately (and easily) size stormwater control facilities  to meet NPDES MS4 permit and Low Impact Development (LID) requirements. We’ll also take a tour through real-world examples and case studies of precast systems at work in several applications. And finally, you’ll walk away with a step-by-step guide of how to apply underground precast concrete stormwater systems at your site.
