Soak Up the Rain New England Webinar Series: “Stormwater Standards for the Future: Environmental and Financial Benefits of Adopting Local Stormwater Regulations”
Wednesday, March 28th, 1:00 PM‐2:00 PM EST
This webinar will highlight an innovative approach to modelling stormwater pollution load reductions to demonstrate cost effective, environmental benefits achieved from implementing model stormwater standards in New Hampshire communities. As part of an EPA Pollution Prevention grant, the University of New Hampshire (UNH) Stormwater Center worked with Vanasse Hangen Brustlin Inc (VHB), the Stratford and Rockingham Regional Planning Commissions, the Southeast Watershed Alliance and the Piscataqua Regional Estuaries Partnership (PREP) to help towns understand the environmental benefits of adopting local stormwater standards including Green Infrastructure. The webinar will showcase modeling approaches, potential pollutant load reductions expected, and share model ordinance language which can be replicated in other interested communities to achieve water quality results. Several communities in the Piscataqua Region watershed are beginning to adopt full or partial components of the model stormwater standards to improve local water quality.
