DENVER, March 27, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- In the spirit of tax day and stormwater credit trading programs around the country, StormCon Denver, the 17th Annual Surface Water Quality Conference and Exposition, is pleased to announce the launch of the StormCon Fee Reduction Program. From now until tax day, April 17, StormCon is offering an additional $17 off the already-reduced Early Bird Registration Rate through the StormCon Fee Reduction Program.
Many communities are now mandated under the Municipal Separate Storm Sewer System (MS4) permit to reduce pollutants from stormwater runoff in an effort to protect urban watersheds and stream health. In order to fund MS4 programs and encourage stormwater pollution prevention efforts, stormwater fees based on impervious surfaces are becoming increasingly popular as well as "stormwater credit trading" and other fee reduction programs.
Stormwater Credit Trading
"Stormwater credit trading" enable property owners to meet a portion of their on-site retention requirement by buying stormwater "credits" rather than building new Green Stormwater Infrastructure (GSI) to reduce and treat storm and surface water. Other exemptions and fee reduction programs offered by municipal stormwater utilities provide relief from stormwater fees for the installation of retention and detention best management practices (BMPs) and employee education and training programs.
StormCon Fee Reduction Program
Similarly, for those interested in earning stormwater continuing education and professional development credits in beautiful Denver, Colorado at the premier industry event, the new StormCon Fee Reduction Program provides extra savings on top of the discounted Early Bird price from now until tax day.
