Recent regulatory and policy changes have now made stormwater management an issue for some single-family homebuilders. Regulatory and permit updates and increased public awareness of flooding and water quality are bringing the issues of stormwater management to others professions, such as municipal officials and code officials who may not be well versed in the topic. This session will teach builders, code and municipal officials, and other non-stormwater professionals on the basic issues of stormwater, the management of runoff, and the new rules that affect a larger percentage of the development community.

Learning Objectives

  • Understand how site conditions can contribute to an increase in stormwater runoff
  • Identify ways in which the generation of stormwater runoff can be minimized
  • Identify ways to treat stormwater runoff for volume, peak rate, and water quality
  • Identify how recent regulations including Pa Code Title 25, Ch 102 and Act 167 stormwater ordinances affect homebuilders and local government officials
