According to WEF, featuring an extensive line-up of stormwater programming, speakers and dedicated exhibit space, this new event offers attendees the best of both worlds by co-locating with WEFTEC 2013, the world’s largest annual water quality conference and exhibition.
Following WEF’s Stormwater Symposium in 2012, this ‘conference-within-a-conference’ was developed to maximise networking opportunities for stormwater professionals and facilitate participation in programming dedicated to stormwater-related issues. Featuring 17 technical sessions and more than 70 speakers, WEF adds that the event’s technical programming will include issues such as changing regulations and policies, climate change impacts, stream restoration, flow-based TMDLs,and stormwater financing strategies.
”Stormwater is an extremely dynamic field right now and is continuing to grow as a significant national water quality issue,” said Seth Brown, WEF's Stormwater Program and Policy Manager. “The Stormwater Congress is an ideal venue for practitioners to network, explore high-performing and cost-effective solutions, and get the latest technical and policy-focused information to aid them in their work.”
