America's Proven First Line of Defense for Stormwater Runoff Pollution Abatement
Time & Location
Sep 26, 2:00 PM – 3:00 PM PDT
About the event
Are you a stormwater professional seeking effective and cost-efficient methods to combat pollutants in the runoff stream? Look no further! Join our enlightening webinar where we will present you with the latest technique for removing pollutants, all while keeping your expenses at a minimum. This seminar is particularly beneficial if your jurisdiction faces TDML waste load allocations, as it will equip you with demonstrated strategies to meet and quantify your progress.
With a combined experience of over 75 years, our two expert presenters will delve into cutting-edge studies that reveal how nitrogen, phosphorus, and other pollutants like particulate matter, metals and toxics can be eliminated from the runoff stream before they even reach catch basins. What's even more impressive is that this process can be achieved at a remarkably reduced cost per pound, up to a minimum of 5 times lower than any other BMP!
Discover why enhanced street sweeping, leveraging today's technology, has been proven, with a high statistical confidence level, to be "the most economical and dominant practice that MS4s can implement and optimize, maximizing nutrient and particulate matter (PM) recovery benefits for urban drainage systems and the environment" (Source: Florida Stormwater Association).
Randy Neprash, PE, Vice-Chair of the National Municipal Stormwater Alliance, commented on the results of a similar study conducted in Minnesota, stating, "We have learned that the cost-effectiveness of removing phosphorous through street sweeping is astonishingly low, at times even less than $100 per pound, compared to thousands of dollars a pound for various other stormwater practices." In fact, both states are now planning to issue TMDL credits to cities based on the weight of sweepings they remove.
This webinar is your opportunity to transform your pavement sweeping program into a leading stormwater pollutant removal program, resulting in a highly cost-effective process for eliminating the most critical pollutants. Additionally, gain insights into the upcoming focus on removing tire-based particulates, microplastics, and more.
You will also learn effective strategies to obtain citizens' support for parked car removal mandates prior to sweeping. Moreover, we will introduce you to groundbreaking technologies that combine AI with traditional public works assignments, offering public works departments the potential for significant cost reductions.
