DuPage County Stormwater Management is hosting a series of
free webcasts from the Center for Watershed Protection throughout the year.
These “lunch and learns” will inform municipal staff and other interested
parties on various stormwater management topics, with a focus on water quality.
In addition, attendees are eligible to receive 1.5 PDHs per webcast. Webcasts
are on a first-come basis, so please register in advance.
Bioretention Design Modifications
May 16, 2018, Noon-1:30 P.M.
Bioretention is a popular stormwater practice in many areas,
and there have been many advances in the design, installation and maintenance
of this practice. What can we learn from these experiences, and what does
recent research have to teach us about enhancing pollutant removal and runoff
volume reduction? This webcast will cover design, installation, and maintenance
considerations with bioretention, and look at changes that can help this practice
address things like habitat and water quality. It will be held in Training Room
#2 at DuPage County OEM (418 N. County Farm Rd., Wheaton)
Retrofitting the Urban Environment: What’s New
June 20, 2018, Noon-1:30 P.M.
Watershed professionals face many unique challenges when
integrating effective stormwater management into our urban landscapes,
streetscapes, and other elements of the built environment. This webcast will
explore the unique stormwater design approach for applying stormwater
management criteria on urban lands, and profile innovative stormwater practices
adapted to the ultra-urban setting. Case studies will explore the lessons
learned from implementing practices in these densely developed areas. It will
be held in room 3-500B of DuPage County’s JTK Administration Building (421 N.
County Farm Rd., Wheaton).
Innovations in Stream Restoration Design & Construction
October 10, 2018, Noon-1:30 P.M.
Stream restoration has been used for many years and with
various objectives and outcomes. As the use of stream restoration has become
more widespread, restoration professionals have gathered experience and
knowledge on the techniques that are better suited for use based on
geographically area or climatic conditions. This webcast will explore several
case studies where changes in stream design or construction were necessary to
address local conditions and how those modifications may be applied in other
locations to create a successful project. It will be held in room 3-500B of
DuPage County’s JTK Administration Building (421 N. County Farm Rd., Wheaton).
