The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Storm Water Management Model (EPA-SWMM) was the focus of “Modeling Green Infrastructure with EPA-SWMM,” a two-day workshop, Aug. 14-15, 2017, at the Virginia Tech Richmond Center, 2810 North Parham Road in Richmond. The workshop was organized by Virginia Cooperative Extension. According to the workshop Web site, the aim was “provide professionals in the stormwater management field with a detailed understanding of a public domain hydrologic/hydraulic modeling tool, EPA-SWMM, …and its use in design of practices intended to control and mitigate the negative effects of urban runoff.” Day 1 provided an introduction to EPA-SWMM for design of best management practices (BMPs), particularly green infrastructure-based BMPs. Day 2 focused on using SWMM in land design, calibration, water quality, and other areas.
