EPA Stormwater Managment Model is Focus of Two-day Workshop August 14-15, 2017, in Richmond, Va.

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Storm Water Management Model (EPA-SWMM) is 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 is organized by Virginia Cooperative Extension.  According to the workshop Web site, the aim is “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 will provide an introduction to EPA-SWMM for design of best management practices (BMPs), particularly green infrastructure-based BMPs.  Day 2 will focus on using SWMM in land design, calibration, water quality, and other areas.  The Web site notes that “participants should have a working knowledge of hydrologic modeling and stormwater control measures.”
