Dear Aubrey,
During the upcoming Watershed and Stormwater Conference, we thought you would like to learn more about some key sessions, led by Center staff.

The New Wave of Stormwater Management Design Monday, Oct 8 10:30am
This topic was voted #1 in interest in a registrant survey. Discussion will be moderated by Dave Hirschman, Stormwater Program Director and provide diverse perspectives on the new compliance tools, the relationship between volume reduction and peak rate (or quantity) controls, and other elements associated with the implementation of runoff volume reduction. As Dave advises, "Whether you are a regulator, site design pro, local government staff, or watershed stakeholder, this session will get you on board with the latest trends in stormwater volume control"  

Illicit Discharge Detection and Elimination Success Stories Monday, Oct 8 10:30Lori
This panel discussion will be moderated by Lori Lilly, Watershed Ecologist and Planner.
This session will focus on the importance of illicit discharge detection and elimination (IDDE) as a quantifiable pollutant load reduction strategy. Lori will also present how to develop the essential elements needed to establish and maintain a successful municipal IDDE program.  

Plenary Session: Gross Solids and Trash Total Maximum Daily LoadsNeely
 The session will be moderated by Neely Law, PhD, Senior Research Analyst.  The context of gross solids as an emerging pollutant of concern will be provided along with results from recent studies that show the surprisingly high nutrient contribution from organic debris. Panelists will also provide insight into the trash-TMDL permits process and programs - from relatively new approaches taken for the Anacostia River watershed and the lessons learned from California's long-term program. Neely says that participants at this session will learn about innovative ways communities can address nutrients and trash to address their impaired waters
