Stormwater Conference to be Held in Panama City

Nov. 7, 2014

~Conference to focus on stormwater permitting, compliance and best management practices~

The Florida Department of Environmental Protection’s Northwest District and the Northwest Florida Water Management District (NWFWMD) invite local governments, engineers, consultants, architects and other interested parties to attend a stormwater conference in Panama City on Nov. 14.

The conference is designed to highlight some of the key issues DEP and NWFWMD review for permitting and compliance of stormwater-treatment systems to ensure proper design and functionality. Appropriate stormwater-treatment system design and maintenance ensures that development activities will not cause violations of water-quality standards in receiving waters. Learning how to avoid these impacts will reduce the potential for future compliance issues.

The conference agenda will include stormwater regulation and thresholds, operating agreements between DEP and NWFWMD, design criteria and best management practices, compliance and online permitting tools. Florida-registered engineers who attend the conference will earn up to four professional development hour credits.
