PORTLAND, Ore., July 22, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- In less than two weeks Portland, Oregon will host StormCon 2014, the largest annual stormwater pollution prevention conference in the country. Improperly managed stormwater runoff can cause flooding and significant erosion, damage streams, and carry excessive nutrients, sediment, metals, volatile organic compounds, and other pollutants downstream. Green infrastructure solutions can supplement our sewer systems to help prevent flooding, at the same time improving the environment and beautifying our neighborhoods.

StormCon is the world's largest surface water-quality event, drawing attendees from around the world every year to find cost-effective solutions to water pollution problems.

Solutions with even greater impact require efforts at the community and regional level. For thirteen years StormCon has been helping engineers identify the methods that they need to do a better job of implementing their programs for controlling stormwater runoff.

The StormCon program includes more than 160 educational sessions presented by the nation's leading stormwater experts and covers a range of material focusing on LID, Urban Retrofit, BMP case studies, Stormwater program management, NPDES, water-quality monitoring, Industrial Stormwater Management, Green Infrastructure to control storm events, and advanced research topics.

In addition, on the final day of the conference the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) representatives will discuss upcoming changes and developments in the national stormwater program and to answer questions from the audience.  Classes are filling up quickly, so don't wait-register today! Course descriptions and registration information can be found at www.stormcon.com

StormCon offers the unparalleled opportunity to learn from the very best in the field. With the increasingly urgent demand to protect our watersheds, the pollution prevention strategies and technologies being discussed and on display at StormCon should not be missed.

Participants will be key personnel from potentially impacted communities and organizations including Oregon DEQ/EPA, U.S. Army Garrison, West Point, NEBC, WA State Dept of Ecology, City of Portland, Fort Collins, CO, Austin, TX, Chattanooga, TN, Ohio Stormwater Association, Honolulu, HI, US Army Corps of Engineers, ASFPM Chapters and Associations, Washington Stormwater Center, and many others. You should join us there as well.
