AWWA’s Annual Conference and Exposition (ACE19) would be held at the Colorado Convention Center in Denver, Colorado from 9 – 12 June 2019. The theme of this year’s conference and exposition is “Innovating the Future of Water” where professionals, students and others within the water sector, can convene to learn from each other and connect with others, in order to solve global water challenges.
For further information about the annual conference and exposition, one can click on the following link to access the event’s website: AWWA Annual Conference and Exposition 2019 – ACE19
Join Forester University for this live, educational webinar as SARA representatives discuss the organization’s proprietary water-quality modeling tools, which were designed to assist users in identifying potentially impaired water bodies, determining the required load reduction to address the potential impairments, and optimizing the selection and planning of BMPs and LIDs for water-quality management during both dry and wet periods.
This course will demonstrate how watershed planners, permittees, and regulatory agencies can apply statistical analysis to the results from the tools and models to develop attainable contact recreation criteria and associated BMP deployment percentages for quantitative water-quality master planning and implementation.
By participating in this webinar, attendees will:
- Review the Clean Water Act and primary contact recreation criteria
- Examine the development and calibration of water-quality models
- Discover the application of SARA water-quality modeling tools, including LRT and BMP tools
- Learn about urban runoff management and identify BMP/LID implementation strategy
- Understand attainable primary contact recreation criteria

This webinar sponsored by Deep Root, will be presented by Post Doctoral Researcher Andrew Tirpak, from the University of Tennessee Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering on January 29th 2019.
By participating in this webinar, attendees will:
- Learn how the health of trees in bioretention practices compares to other urban trees and understand the design and environmental factors that are most influential to tree health in these systems
- Discover the contributions trees provide to the hydrologic and pollutant removal performance of bioretention practices and how they vary among tree species
- Gain exposure to, and understand the performance capabilities of, green infrastructure technologies designed to simultaneously manage urban runoff and promote tree health
- Understand how bioretention design and meteorological parameters impact tree function in bioretention suspended pavement systems
