Stormwater regulations are a hodgepodge of different rules, methods, and calculations for different components of the hydrologic cycle. Everyone is completely focused on their separate piece of the stormwater pie without their acknowledgement of the bigger stormwater picture. Doug Beyerlein described this problem in his article “It is all the same water” in the November/December 2019 issue of Stormwater magazine.
Now in his webinar, STORMWATER REGULATIONS DONE RIGHT, Beyerlein presents a single, coherent picture of how all of the components of stormwater can be managed using one engineering tool that encompasses the entire hydrologic cycle. Whether you are dealing with hydromodification, water quality, drawdown time, LID, or wetland protection, all of the required stormwater regulations can based on the same set of data using the hydrologic cycle.
Stormwater Regulations Done Right Learning Objectives
Attendees can expect the discussion and education of the following learning objectives.
- Explain how solving just one component of stormwater runoff results in creating other problems in the process.
- Discuss the importance of understanding the whole hydrologic cycle and how it can be used to solve stormwater problems.
- Recognize the hurdles to producing consistent stormwater regulations.
- Identify the one tool that can tie together all regulations in a coherent, useful package.
