Webcast Home

Welcome to the Center for Watershed Protection’s new webcast marketplace. Since 2009, the Center has been providing high quality webcasts for stormwater and watershed professionals. Since we began, we estimate that 17,000 professionals have participated in the Center’s webcasts.

In 2014, we will offer two series on consistently requested topics: The Life of a Stormwater Practice and Implementing TMDLs, as well as single topic webcasts. There is a discount when you purchase a complete series. You receive the same affordable pricing and offer of unlimited participation per registration. Professional Development Hours (PDHs) and Continuing Education Units (CEUs) are available.

New! If you have to miss a 2014 live webcast, you can purchase and view it within 60 days of the original airing, including individual webcasts that are part of a series. 

New as of May 5, 2014! The Center is pleased to offer PDHs and CEUs from the Practicing Institute of Engineering (PIE) for our past webcasts. Look for the PIE logo and read more on our PIE webpage.

Stream restoration has been used for many years and with various objectives and outcomes. Increasingly, it has become important to quantify the various benefits of practices, such as stream restoration. However, the science behind this quantification of benefits can be tricky, especially for pollutant reduction performance. Several updated studies and performance evaluation techniques make this more accessible. This webcast will explore several protocols to quantify and verify the benefits of stream restoration for pollutants such as sediment and nutrients over time.

 Regional and local TMDLs are increasingly driving the selection and implementation of BMPs.  Across the country, there is a tremendous need for communities to understand which BMPs can be used, how much pollutant removal credit they receive and at what cost.  Many lessons have been learned from places where implementation has been progressing.  This two-part series will focus on a couple of key elements of TMDL planning and implementation. 

Series 2, Session 1: Local TMDLs & Regional/River Basin TMDLs:
A Happy Engagement or a Shotgun Wedding?

7Speakers: Karen Cappiella, Program Director, Research, Center for Watershed Protection (Ellicott City, MD)

Jonathan Champion, Branch Chief - Planning and Reporting, Stormwater Management Division, District Department of the Environment (Washington, DC)

John Lawrence, Associate Dean, Department of Economics, Iowa State University

Increasingly, TMDLs are being developed to address impairments are very large scales, such as the Chesapeake Bay, Gulf of Mexico/Mississippi Basin, Great Lakes, etc. Often, these large, regional TMDLs are “nested” with local TMDLs that address local impairments (e.g., for bacteria, biological standards, dissolved oxygen, local pollutants). The pollutants of concern are often different for the regional and local TMDLs.

Several important questions emerge out of these situations. How do large, regional TMDLs translate to planning and implementation at smaller scales, such as states and local governments? If TMDLs are nested, how do the TMDLs at different scales “talk to each other,” and how can communities target the most effective suite of BMPs to address TMDLs at all levels. This webcast will explore the issue of regional and nested TMDLs and how analytical tools are emerging to integrate and coordinate management practices implemented at the local and regional levels.

Many communities seek solutions to improve water quality, green the community, and comply with permit conditions and numerical standards in TMDLs. One of the most efficient means to achieve multiple benefits is to retrofit a community’s existing stormwater infrastructure, consisting of older detention basins and ponds, among other practices. This webcast will highlight a systematic and effective way to inventory existing practices, develop concept plans, prioritize retrofits based on pollutant removal, cost, and other factors, and construct the retrofits.
