EBC CT Chapter and Rinker Materials Present:
The impacts of untreated stormwater are being felt in every community and by most residents. Untreated stormwater causes algae blooms and shrinks water and wetland resources resulting in negative impacts to wildlife habitats. For the longest time, these impacts have frequently gone un-noticed until that favorite pond starts turning into a marsh or wet meadow.

Government has taken steps to protect these valuable resources by developing and implementing stormwater regulations that require treatment permits. With a growing understanding of the problem and with new and emerging technologies, these regulatory requirements are constantly evolving as more stringent pollution limits are set.

This EBC workshop is designed to provide up-to-date information about DEP and DOT regulatory changes, evolving alternative stormwater treatment technologies and an understanding of the importance of implementing long term maintenance practices.

Topics include:

  • Stormwater Permit Renewal Requirements in Connecticut
  • Stormwater 101- Complying with Connecticut DOT requirements
  • A Hybrid Approach to Stormwater Treatment using a mix of LID technologies and conventional BMP’s
  • Eutrophication & Stormwater – Breakthrough Technologies to Treat Phosphorous in Stormwater
  • Maintenance – The Key to Long Term Operations of your BMP

Speakers Include:

  • Christopher Stone, P.E., Connecticut Department of Environmental Protection, Stormwater Permiting Division
  • Julie Beth Hinds, Senior Project Manager, Planning, VHB Pioneer
  • Michael J. Mastroluca, P.E., Senior Civil Engineer, H. W. Lochner
