SCCWRP-hosted stormwater drainage conference soliciting abstracts

Posted July 30, 2021
Runoff from a parking lot drains to a bioretention system containing special engineered soil media designed to remove contaminants. A SCCWRP-hosted international conference scheduled for January 2022 will provide a forum for advancing modeling of urban stormwater drainage systems.

A SCCWRP-hosted international conference next year that will focus on improving modeling of urban stormwater drainage systems has begun soliciting abstracts for presentations, workshops and special sessions.

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. Abstracts are due August 6, 2021. For more information, contact
