SCCWRP asked to host upcoming international conference on stormwater modeling

Posted May 7, 2021

SCCWRP has been asked to organize and host an international conference in early 2022 that will focus on improving modeling of urban stormwater drainage systems.

The triennial Urban Drainage Modeling Conference, scheduled to take place January 10-12, 2022 at SCCWRP, will provide a forum for engineers, scientists, and others to advance the modeling work that underlies many routine stormwater planning and permitting activities.

Topics relevant to Southern California will include changing assumptions about historical models due to climate change and fires, as well as Reasonable Assurance Analysis, a type of modeling used to demonstrate whether planned stormwater BMPs (best management practices) will achieve their intended water-quality improvement targets in the future.

SCCWRP is working closely with the Joint Committee on Urban Drainage to put together the conference, which will allow attendees to attend in person or via the web.

For more information and to get involved, visit or contact Dr. Elizabeth Fassman-Beck.
