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.
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:
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:
Attendance at a Stormwater Manual webinar qualifies for Professional Development Hours (PDH) for the Minnesota Board of AELSLAGID. Typically, most webinars are 1.5 hours in length and therefore 1.5 PDH is offered. Look for links to certificates with each qualifying webinar (above).
Note that it is your responsibility to attend the webinar and document your attendance, including downloading the certificate. The MPCA documents people who attended the webinar, including the times they were logged in to the webinar. We cannot document people who have viewed recorded webinars. We provide a form summarizing the justification for offering pdhs. See File:CONTINUING EDUCATION ASSESSMENT FORM - Stormwater Manual webinars.docx
