Stormwater Institute

The Stormwater Institute (SWI) was originally conceived for organizations (not individuals) to provide funding for efforts in meeting critical needs within the stormwater sector.

History of SWI

As the Stormwater Community at WEF has matured, SWI has evolved to become an affinity group within this community. Today, the Stormwater Institute is made up of sponsors, donors, and corporate partners who work to benefit the overall Stormwater Community.

These organizations have shown their commitment to supporting the development of stormwater solutions and policy development via SWI and are leaders in stormwater management in their own right.
