Stormwater Utility Seminar

Hyatt Regency McCormick Place Chicago, Illinois 
Tuesday, August 2, 2011

The need for funding across the water sector continues to be a challenging topic, and while water/wastewater utilities have a long track record of well-grounded funding systems, the topic of user-based fee structures to pay for stormwater collection and management is a developing and dynamic field.  To support this growing and evolving need, WEF is hosting a one-day seminar focusing on various aspects of stormwater utility management.  Specific topics that will be covered include:

  • Regulatory updates on stormwater (from U.S. EPA)
  • Technical aspects of fee development
  • Public outreach in stormwater utility feasibility analyses
  • Planning considerations for fee-based structures
  • Legal trends on stormwater utilities across the country
  • Legislative updates on stormwater utilities at the state level 

Agenda as of 7/18/11 (PDF)

Case study speakers will be confirmed in the coming weeks and the agenda will be updated often so please check back.  Case studies are expected to represent a variety of different-sized utilities from across the country.
