    September Webinar Series: Resiliency the new Sustainability

    As we embark into a new decade the realities of climate change are becoming more and more prevalent in our everyday lives.  The idea of sustainability is now surpassed by the need to be resilient in everything we do.  By the numbers, flood hazards are the #1 natural hazard to impact Pennsylvania.  Impacting our communities large and small through impacts on water quality, our communities, and infrastructure to name a few.  As floodplain managers and design professionals it is more important than ever to be at the forefront of resilience and make it our reality through all our collective work.  Join us for the 2020 PAFPM September Webinar Series to help us lead this charge. 

    Presentations for September 23rd:

    • Funding Options for Municipalities Implementing Stormwater BMPs
      • Presented by Rettew - Kara Kalupson
    • Streams in Equilibrium are Resilient
      • Presented by Rettew – Mark Metzler

    For questions: flood@pafpm.org 

    (Due to the uncertainty of future coronavirus circumstances in Pennsylvania, to ensure the health and safety of our members and attendees, we have elected to cancel our in-person conference and make the shift to a series of weekly webinars in September.)

    Overview:

    A very unique stormwater and flooding issue presented itself in Carlisle Borough. The Letort Spring Run traversed the town and its watershed had become substantially developed causing excessive runoff, and a series of low hydraulic capacity bridges caused subsequent surcharge of an existing storm sewer system causing flooding. The Borough also needed to address water quality from stormwater runoff to meet their NPDES permit requirements. Working closely with Skelly-Loy, a complex analysis was performed using GIS and hydrologic and hydraulic modelling using WMS, HEC-RAS, PeakFQ, StreamStats and SWMM to solve the problem using low impact development options.
