McGill Attends 17th Annual SESWA Regional Stormwater Conference as a Sponsor
McGill was a sponsor at the 17th Annual Southeast Stormwater Association (SESWA) Regional Stormwater Conference in Hilton Head, South Carolina, from October 5th through 7th.
The conference — hosted by SESWA — is the only regional conference that is exclusively devoted to the topic of stormwater education and the issues that are faced by stormwater professionals in both the public and private sectors.
McGill Director of Water Resources Dori Sabeh attended the conference and said, “The conference was well organized with full attendance from a wide spectrum of regulatory agencies, local government representatives, consultants, and product suppliers.”
SESWA CONFERENCE AGENDA AND NETWORKING OPPORTUNITIES
The conference consisted of a myriad of informative sessions and presentations on subjects such as post-construction built-upon area (BUA) management, naturalization efforts, prioritizing interconnected regional projects, keys to successful stormwater master planning in historic cities, developing nutrient management strategies, implementing new stormwater design standards, restoring history through green stormwater infrastructure, how ArcGIS Online (AGOL) applications can assist communities more efficiently, and restoring predevelopment hydrology with smart stormwater controls.
At the conclusion of the conference, the National Association of Clean Water Agencies provided an update on water-related issues and US Environmental Protection Agency’s stormwater program priorities at the national level, focusing on stormwater policy and permitting programs.
McGill made the most of the opportunity to network with stormwater managers and regulators at the municipal, state, and federal levels, as well as with developers and land use planners, civil and environmental engineers, landscape architects, environmentalists, and interested citizens.
“McGill sponsors and attends the conference because it provides an opportunity for exchange of ideas and experiences on stormwater solutions and successes as well as legislation update and funding opportunities for stormwater projects,” explained Dori.
