Post-Construction Stormwater BMPs Master Class Series

Aug. 13, 2015

With land development exploding at a rate more than double our population growth, well-designed and maintained stormwater BMPs are essential for every community. But, proper design and construction of stormwater BMPs isn’t as easy as it looks. Are you up-to-speed on the latest BMP techniques, applications, and tools?

Join our panel of stormwater industry experts for a comprehensive 5-session live and on-demand master class series exploring the A-to-Z of post-construction stormwater BMPs design, construction, inspection, maintenance, and green infrastructure practices from across the U.S. and beyond.

Additional details:
In this 5-session series, we’ll start with a look at the fundamental drivers, key elements, regulations, and system requirements of post-construction stormwater BMPs, and where green infrastructure fits into the picture. Building on this introduction, we’ll dive into green infrastructure (from green roofs to bioswales) and discuss its critical components, applications, considerations, and results. Next, we’ll move to BMP design and selection, exploring the basic computational hydrologic methods to determine stormwater runoff rates and volumes; the hydraulic methods to calculate velocities of flow and depths of conveyances and impoundments; and review the applicable computer modeling programs. We’ll then cover the basics of BMP construction, including: structural requirements; construction methods, scheduling, and sequencing; and soil function and planting requirements. And finally, we’ll wrap up our stormwater BMP tour with a discussion of BMP inspection and maintenance, and how you can best keep your BMPs happy and healthy.

This Master Class Series consists of five 1-1.5 hour live and on-demand presentations and Q&A session (5 PDHs / 0.5 CEUs total) focusing on the following topics.

    Sept. 16: BMP Fundamentals – Where We Are and Where We’re Going Sept. 23: Green Infrastructure – Where, When, and How to Incorporate It Sept. 30: BMP Design and Selection – Hydrology, Hydraulics, and Computer Modeling Oct 7: BMP Construction Methods and Techniques – Getting the Little Things Right

  • Oct 14: BMP Inspection and Maintenance – Keeping BMPs Working
  • All sessions are presented live and in an on-demand format so you may attend at your leisure, and are accompanied by a quiz to test your skills. Learning on your own at home, live and online, or with a group, Forester University’s Master Class Series is designed as an interactive experience with the leading experts in the field.
