Stormwater Management and Flooding Prevention on Wetland Landscapes Workshop
Jan 31 @ 8:30 am – 3:00 pm

11/22/2021 UPDATE: This event has been postponed. It will be rescheduled ASAP.

This workshop is designed to address drainage, stormwater management and flooding prevention for residential and commercial development on landscapes with large areas of jurisdictional wetlands. Specifically addressed will be northern New Hanover County, NC, an area of more than 20 square miles within which the soils are predominantly poorly drained and very poorly drained hydric soils. Thus, the area is a large contiguous wetland ecosystem within which most of the area is also jurisdictional wetlands subject to regulation by the US Army Corps of Engineers in accordance with Section 404 of the Clean Water Act. The principles, practices, and regulations to be discussed in this workshop are applicable to drainage, stormwater management and flooding prevention for wetland conversion to development in any large wetland ecosystem. Topics covered will include wetland definitions and characteristics, wetland regulatory programs and water management systems to facilitate wetland conversions to development uses.

Who Should Attend?

This workshop will be valuable to local government personnel in planning, stormwater engineering and environmental positions; consultants in the fields of planning, stormwater engineering and environmental assessments; land developers; real estate professionals and anyone else with an interest in wetland conversions to development uses. The workshop will include a primer on the structure and ecological functions of wetland ecosystems, so little to no background in wetlands is needed.

Registration

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, there is a limited number of seats for professionals, however with the success of this workshop we will plan to present the workshop again in the spring for a larger more diverse crowd.

You can register at https://www.eventbrite.com/e/stormwater-management-tickets-200363632017.  There is a $10 registration fee and lunch is included.  Participants will also receive a thumb drive with all presentations from the day.  Professional credits are available.

For more details see please see the attached flyer and agenda.  Please feel free to forward this information on to those who might be interested.

If you have any questions, feel free to contact Dru Harrison at drharrison@nhcgov.com.
