INDIANAPOLIS, June 27, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Precipitation in an urban or suburban area that does not evaporate or soak into the ground but instead runs across the land and into the nearest waterway is considered stormwater runoff. Increased development across the watershed has made stormwater runoff the fastest growing source of pollution in the United States.
Water protection experts will gather in Indianapolis, Indiana to explore the newest pollution prevention technologies and discuss which strategies are most effective in minimizing surface water pollution. With NPDES compliance in mind, StormCon 2016 brings together public officials, builders and contractors, inspectors, civil engineers, designers, regulators, enforcement officials, planners, consultants, researchers, educators, EPA staff, property executives, and other water quality professionals under one roof to focus on this critically important topic.
StormCon fills an increasingly urgent need by bringing government officials responsible for public health & safety and protecting our water supplies together with private sector engineers, consultants and solution providers.
The multi-track curriculum features over 130 educational sessions presented by leading Stormwater experts and covers topics focusing on BMP case studies, Green Infrastructure, Stormwater program management, NPDES, water-quality monitoring, Industrial Stormwater, Erosion Control, and Stormwater Management for Solid Waste Facilities.Nearly 200 companies exhibit Stormwater-related products and equipment, the world's largest tradeshow of its kind.
