PORTLAND, Ore., June 19, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Water issues now dominate the discussion in America's older cities where wastewater and stormwater infrastructure built a century ago are now in decay. These problems are spreading to suburbia whose infrastructure solutions are now proving less than adequate as development spreads and watersheds have been paved over with impermeable surfaces. What techniques, resources, and hard-infrastructure solutions are there to solve these aging storm water management problems?

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.

StormCon announces the addition of "Repairing Entrenched, Incised and Degraded Urban Streams – Techniques and Case Studies". This full-day course is a rare opportunity to learn firsthand from those experienced project designers and builders to see what has worked and what not. Additional information on our diverse comprehensive workshop series is available at

In addition, 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 Green Infrastructure, Urban Retrofit, BMP case studies, Stormwater program management, NPDES, water-quality monitoring, Industrial Stormwater Management, Erosion & Sediment Control, and advanced research topics. Nearly 200 vendors and service providers will exhibit stormwater-related products and equipment, the world's largest trade show of its kind.

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. Classes are filling up quickly, so don't wait-register today! Course descriptions and registration information can be found at

Participants will be key personnel from potentially impacted communities and organizations including NEBC, EPA, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Oregon Environmental Council, WA State Dept of Ecology, San Diego, New York, New Jersey, Suffolk County, Los Angeles, Portland, Seattle, and Anchorage, US Army Corps of Engineers, Amec, Texas Tech, Oregon Environmental Council, AbTech, Modular Wetlands, Kanaflex, Brown & Caldwell, CleanWay Environmental, Kennedy/Jenks, Washington Stormwater Center, and many others.
