DENVER, July 12, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Wildfires have scorched thousands of acres across the country and "fire season" is still ahead. How do we protect our people, property, infrastructure and watersheds from post-fire erosion, debris flows and flooding hazards before the winter rains arrive?
StormCon announces the addition of a full-day course on August 21st titled "Fire & Rain: Rapid Assessment and Emergency Mitigation Measures Following Wildfires." This is an invaluable opportunity to learn firsthand from those who have played key roles in emergency post-fire efforts throughout the western states. If your community is located in an area potentially impacted by wildfires, do not miss this special course. Details and registration are available at http://www.stormcon.com/fireandrain.htm
StormCon fills a vital need by bringing government officials responsible for public health and safety and protecting our water supplies together with private sector engineers, consultants, project developers, and solution providers. With the increasingly urgent demand to protect our watersheds, the pollution prevention strategies and technologies being discussed and on display at StormCon should not be missed.
Participants will be key personnel from cities and counties throughout North America, and other participating organizations include EPA, Geosyntec, AMEC, CH2M HILL, National Park Service, Home Depot, CDOT, URS, University of California, University of Delaware, and many others. You should join us there as well.
In addition to Fire & Rain, the multi-track course curriculum features more than 125 educational sessions presented by the nation's leading Stormwater experts and covers a range of material focusing on Green Infrastructure, Urban Retrofit, BMP case studies, Stormwater program management, NPDES, water-quality monitoring, Industrial Stormwater Management, Erosion & Sediment Control, and advanced research topics.
