==January 19, 2022 - Pretreatment==

Overview: While the benefits of pretreatment are well understood, we continue to see ineffective pretreatment as a result of poor design or construction, inadequate maintenance, incorrect choice of practice, inadequate sizing, and so forth. The objectives for this webinar are to reiterate the role and importance of pretreatment, provide examples of good and recommended practices, and discuss some common concerns with pretreatment implementation.

June 18, 2019 - Minnesota Stormwater Manual updates on Stormwater Pretreatment Practices

Overview: This webinar covered material developed through multiple work orders during 2018-2018. The objective was to update the pretreatment information in the Minnesota Stormwater Manual, which included information on vegetated filter strips, settling practices, case studies, and a tool for selecting the appropriate pretreatment practice.

Speakers

February 27, 2019 - Infiltration at sites with potential contamination

The MPCA hosted a live webinar on February 27, 2019, 8:30-11:30. The presenter was Mike Trojan from the MPCA and the webinar was attended in person by several stormwater representatives.

August 7, 2018 - Stormwater management for Solar Projects

The Minnesota Pollution Control Agency (MPCA) hosted a live webinar on Tuesday, August 7, 10:00-11:00 (Central time). Abstract:

Speakers:

  • Logan Quiggle - Stormwater Engineer; MPCA

January 9, 2018 - Maximizing stormwater BMPs for phosphorus removal

The Minnesota Pollution Control Agency (MPCA) hosted a live webinar on Tuesday, January 9, 1:30-3:30 (Central time).

Abstract: Despite our best intentions, sometimes our stormwater Best Management Practices do not do what we want or expect of them. This is particularly true for stormwater management of phosphorus. We have invited three expert speakers to discuss three particularly important and perhaps not fully understood BMPs – wet ponds, bioretention, and street sweeping/litter management. The speakers will discuss why these BMPs have often not achieved water quality goals for phosphorus and present approaches to maximizing their pollutant removal effectiveness.

Speakers:

  • Joe Bischoff - Principal Aquatic Ecologist; Wenck Associates, Inc.
  • Dr. Andy Erickson - Research Associate; St. Anthony Falls Laboratory; University of Minnesota
  • Dr. Sarah Hobbie – Professor; Ecology, Evolution, and Behavior; University of Minnesota

May 30, 2017 - Bioretention From the Ground Up

The MPCA hosted a live webinar on updates to the MIDS Calculator (Version 3). This webinar focused on bioretention media, bioretention vegetation, and tree-based bioretention. Guest speakers included:

  • Fred Rozumalski, Registered Landscape Architect- Barr Engineering
  • Marcy Bean, Professional Landscape Architect-Mississippi Watershed Management Organization and
  • Mike Isensee-Administrator, Middle St. Croix Watershed Management Organization

Links

March 15, 2017 - Updates to the Minimal Impact Design Standards (MIDS) Calculator

The MPCA hosted a live webinar on updates to the MIDS Calculator (Version 3). This webinar focused on recent updates to the MIDS Calculator and included example applications and a tour of the supporting information in the Minnesota Stormwater Manual. The webinar included the following topics:

  • Using the new underground infiltration BMP
  • Using the updated harvest and use BMP
  • Using the new impervious surface disconnection BMP
  • Several other minor changes will be briefly discussed (see Updates to the MIDS Calculator)
