FSWCD Viewing of CWP Webcast #7: Watershed Based Planning Techniques

Wednesday, November 18, 2020
1:00 PM - 2:30 PM

Register Now!

Due to the Coronavirus pandemic, we are having to modify our procedure for the CWP webcast series. Instead of holding the webcast viewing here in our office, registered attendees will receive a link allowing you to view the webcast remotely (free of charge). It is important to know that the webcasts are now conducted through Zoom, which limits the amount of attendees that can join and CWP wants to make sure those that have paid for the webcast have a seat in the room, so we are limiting the number of links we share to help limit steaming disruptions. Should you have trouble viewing remotely, I will still plan on forwarding the webcast recording and resources once they are made available.

As always, we appreciate your patience and support as we try to coordinate around these ever-changing and necessary restrictions. Please contact Brooke at bfrusher@franklinswcd.org if you have any questions. You can also purchase the webcasts directly through www.cwp.org to view remotely.

Attendees will receive a certificate of attendance and other resources approximately 1 week after the event.

Webcast Description:

A watershed-based planning approach is effective in tying together multiple community objectives including managing stormwater, improving water quality, protecting high quality natural resources, and providing for public recreation. A comprehensive watershed plan allows communities to identify watershed restoration priorities, highlight flood mitigation and stormwater retrofits projects to meet regulatory goals such as TMDLs, and achieve compliance with federal and state permits.  Techniques such as Better Site Design (BSD) and environmental site design (ESD), conservation easements, land-use designations, zoning, and PDR or TDR programs can play a role in creating management plans at the watershed scale. In this webcast we will look at these techniques and learn from some case studies how watershed level planning has benefitted a community in meeting their restoration objectives.
