State and National Perspectives on Stormwater Practices, Regulations, and Policies
Randy Neprash, PE brings a unique perspective of the stormwater sector. His work extends from local program operations to state regulations to promoting stormwater in the eyes of Congress. Stormwater is a significant source of water pollution and an unusual public infrastructure sector, in terms of regulations, funding, politics, and technical challenges. In his presentation and Q&A, Randy will address:
- What does it mean that stormwater is much less “well-behaved” compared with other water infrastructure sectors?
- What are the important elements of stormwater regulation, governance, and technical understanding that are lacking?
- Is there a analogous infrastructure sector that can be a useful model for better understanding stormwater?
- What are the best ways to move forward to address these deficiencies an challenges?
