Interested in advancing innovative stormwater management and capture projects? Not sure how to evaluate the benefits these projects can provide? This webcast on Sept. 7th from noon to 2 pm Eastern is for you!
This webcast is the fourth in a series of meetings exploring different opportunities and challenges associated with stormwater capture and use (SCU) across the U.S. Co-hosted by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and Pacific Institute, the webcast will bring together experts in stormwater capture and use project planning, funding, and benefits evaluation. We will explore why evaluations of project benefits are critical to building support for SCU projects and obtaining project funding, and how practitioners actually identify and estimate these benefits. This effort is part of the national Water Reuse Action Plan, through which the EPA and other organizations are building the nation’s capacity to benefit from wastewater recycling and stormwater capture and use (https://www.epa.gov/waterreuse/water-reuse-action-plan).
This webinar provides the opportunity to hear from local experts, state funding agencies, and researchers who have developed and studied methods for evaluating SCU benefits. We will explore the different types of estimates needed for different purposes and hear about recent research to develop and test new methods for evaluating a wide range of project benefits. The webcast will help identify priorities for work needed to improve practitioners’ ability to persuasively represent SCU project benefits. This discussion will inform future national discussions about SCU opportunities and challenges and actions needed to build our capacity to pursue SCU across the nation.
