Stormwater Monitoring: A Primer on Basic Data and Methods

When it rains, water tends to get dirty. Very dirty. This one-hour pre-recorded webinar is a primer on basic water quality monitoring skills, data and resources available to assist with stormwater management efforts. Reference materials are based on a volunteer water quality monitoring program in Iowa, and how its field parameters can be applied to erosion/sediment and stormwater management practices as a method of regular reporting, assessment and analysis of water quality improvement. The act of water quality monitoring and use of data can be applied to all six of the minimum control measures required by the NPDES program. Learn some of the basic steps for gathering data and how it can be applied to each..

Identifying Waters of the United States

Waters of the U.S. are not static. To stay on top of their definition, you must embrace the melodrama of legal and political wrangling over their definition. The Clean Water Rule is wounded and not likely to reemerge except under a narrow set of circumstances.
