Please join us for a free webinar on ASCE’s Certification Guidelines for Stormwater Manufactured Treatment Devices on Tuesday, May 10 at 1pm EDT presented by Mr. Gordon England, P.E., D.WRE (Ret.). This will be the third free webinar offered by the AAWRE to Diplomates.


The Guideline for Certification of Stormwater BMPs has two primary purposes 1) Development of a protocol for assessing the efficiency of MTDs (Manufactured Treated Devices) used for physical separation of non-dissolved solids from stormwater runoff, including the assessment of scouring of settled particles under high flow conditions. The removal of trash, leaves, and hydrocarbons are not included in this protocol. 2) To aid regulators in establishing certification programs for MTDs with a broad set of analytical tools that could be adapted for local regulatory agency needs.

The following critical components of the Guidelines are addressed in this webinar:  Laboratory Testing, Scaling Relations, Field Testing, Data Analysis and Performance Evaluation, Data Reporting, Inspection and Maintenance, and Verification and Certification Programs and Processes.
