The Solution to Designing Climate-Resilient Stormwater Infrastructure is in the Forecast

Robert Bathurst Headshot and TitleDate TBD, June, 2021
Robert “Bob” Bathurst, MS, PE, D.WRE, LEED AP®

The state of wireless connectivity and microcomputer technology make it now practical to precisely control the timing, volume and rate of discharge from stormwater management facilities; thereby greatly enhancing their performance. Traditional Stormwater Management design techniques utilize static synthetic rainfall distributions that are assumed to last 24 hours. Smart Stormwater Management Systems utilize artificial intelligence to adapt stormwater management facility behavior to hyper-local precipitation forecasts; both precipitation quantity and temporal distribution. Smart Stormwater Management Systems react to this data in real time, even when the forecast updates. Likewise, Smart Stormwater Management Systems can maximize the opportunity for runoff reduction (via infiltration/evaporation) by retaining the runoff volume for the entire period of time between storm events. In so doing Smart Stormwater Management Systems maximize the opportunity for pollutant reduction, aquifer recharge and/or stormwater reuse. This “improved” extended detention technique can result in noteworthy runoff reduction, even for stormwater facilities that have only modest infiltration capacity. The reduction in runoff volume correlates directly to a reduction in kinetic energy imposed upon the downstream channel; thereby reducing the potential for stream channel erosion. When Smart Stormwater Management Systems release stored water, they do so in advance of the impending precipitation event and at the minimum discharge rate possible to minimize the erosive energy imposed upon the downstream channel/stream. The timing of releases from Smart Stormwater Management Systems are typically offset from that of other portions of the watershed; thereby further reducing both downstream erosion, flooding and/or CSOs.

21st Century Solutions to Failing Septic System Infrastructure

Thursday, April 22, 2021, 10:00am to 11:00 am Eastern
Andrew Jakubowitch, PE, MBA, and Kerry Tyson, PE

The presentation “21st Century Solutions to Failing Septic System Infrastructure” will explore the basics of septic systems, why they fail, the differences in types of septic systems, and the benefits of updating aging or over-stressed infrastructure. As we approach these concepts, we will also present a case study on an innovative approach used at Potters Mills, Pennsylvania, which faced a 72% failure rate and no direct connection to a municipal sewer system.

Monday, April 19, 2021, 10:30am to 11:30 am Eastern
Andrew Jakubowitch, PE, MBA, and Kerry Tyson, PE

This webinar is presented as part of the Pennsylvania State Association of Township Supervisors (PSATS) educational calendar. Please reach out to PSATS directly to register for this event.

 

How to Scale Municipal Wastewater Treatment While Protecting Key Environmental Resources (Live)

January 7, 2021, 10:00am to 11:00am
Chuck Thompson, PE
RCEP Activity ID 166137-129206

The presentation “How to Scale Municipal Wastewater Treatment while Protecting Key Environmental Resources” will explore the causes for increasing capacity in municipal wastewater treatment, options available to increase the load of the facility, risks involved in upgrading a municipal plant, and environmental factors taken into account in the design and construction. The presenter will relate these topics to a case study of the Bellefonte Borough Authority wastewater treatment plant in central Pennsylvania as a real world example.
