This event is designed to provide developers, engineers, contractors, planners, researchers, regulatory staff, municipal officials, and public works staff an opportunity to discuss the stormwater management options for coastal South Carolina. The session will focus on the strengths and weaknesses of traditional and alternative stormwater management strategies (e.g., ponds and low impact development practices). Strengths and weaknesses of traditional stormwater practices, as well as obstacles and opportunities to implementing Low Impact Development practices will be explored via small group discussions to address future needs of coastal communities. Event discussions will be summarized and provided as an assessment report to be distributed to interested stakeholders and will include recommendations addressing options for incentives, regulatory obstacles and opportunities, and educational and research needs. Participant input is critical to assuring that the needs of affected communities and stakeholders are addressed. This event is free of charge and lunch will be provided. CEU and PDH credits are available.
