Held at the Castaway in NW Portland on September 25th and 26th, 2019
Abstracts Due May 24th, 2019
The Oregon Section of the American Society of Civil Engineers Environment and Water Resources Group (ASCE-EWRG) and the Oregon Chapter of the American Public Works Association (APWA) is proud to present the 7th Sustainable Stormwater Symposium in Portland, Oregon, a national green infrastructure leader, held at the Castaway in NW Portland.
The purpose of the Sustainable Stormwater Symposium is to provide stormwater professionals an elevated understanding of current stormwater planning, design, and implementation approaches, as well as an opportunity to connect and mingle with others in the industry.
The EWRG-APWA Sustainable Stormwater Symposium has been providing educational and networking opportunities to local stormwater professionals since 2009. Attendees will be immersed in Portland’s sustainable culture, from the conference venue and catering at The Castaway, to the bike tour which will take you by Portland’s nationally recognized “green” infrastructure. This 2-day event provides a full day of presentations by regional experts in all aspects of stormwater management. Day one is kicked-off by a nationally recognized keynote speaker, and capped-off with a happy hour and poster session. The second day continues in the morning with invited speakers and more informational sessions. After lunch, we strap on our bike helmets and spend the afternoon touring Portland’s latest innovative BMPs. Don’t have a bike? No problem, you can either rent one or jump in the 15-passenger van. The Symposium concludes with a happy hour event at the end of the bike tour and enjoying some local micro brews (or non-alcoholic beverages). It’s very Portland! This Symposium is an incredible value, and a truly unique event. We look forward to seeing you in September!
