The Pennsylvania State Association of Township Supervisors (PSATS) is now seeking proposals for interactive and leading-edge workshop presentations for its upcoming 2019 Pennsylvania Stormwater Conference.
Interested parties must submit proposals to PSATS by 8 p.m. on June 14, 2019, through this link. All applicants will be notified of the status of their proposals by June 28, 2019. Selected presentations must be submitted to PSATS by September 20, 2019.
The selection committee is looking for 60-minute interactive presentations (in Powerpoint, Prezi, or another format) that will help Pennsylvania municipalities with NPDES MS4 permits more effectively and efficiently comply with their permit requirements, including practices and procedures that address Pollutant Reduction Plans and TMDL plans.
Conference Dates and Locations
This conference will be held in two locations: in western Pennsylvania on October 16 at the Doubletree Hotel Conference Center in Monroeville; and in eastern Pennsylvania on November 14 at the Desmond Malvern Conference Center in Malvern.
Conference Workshop Tracks
The conference offers two educational tracks for attendees, each with five presentations. A technical track for presentations that address relevant on-the-ground and in-the-field actions or practices, and a policy track that focuses on management and administration issues attendant to stormwater programs. The selection committee is seeking workshop proposals for both tracks. Preference will be given to those presenters willing to present at both locations.
Proposals are being sought on a diverse array of related issues such as: stormwater program planning and management; protocols for developing effective BMP design, inspection, maintenance, and operation procedures; innovative stormwater management practices; implementing monitoring programs; developing community engagement practices; how to evaluate emerging technologies and dealing with extreme events; stormwater fee calculation and project development; and implementing green infrastructure and green road projects. Other topics are welcome as well.
