A Business Perspective
on Stormwater Management

Regional regulations are tightening, third party lawsuits are an emerging enforcement threat, and the economics of compliance matter more than ever for property owners and managers. This conference addresses these challenges and presents practical answers for Oregon companies, municipalities, and service providers.

Comments from Last Year's Conference:

"I went back to the office to see if we still have an NEBC membership! I leaned a lot in one day. I've also changed course on a project with new information and the insight of contacts I met at the conference."

"This is the only conference where I've seen many substantive presentations by regulators that impact the stormwater permits I am involved with."

"I always enjoy the conference - I work in industry and have been coming to the conference for 3 years. Thanks for your continued efforts in bringing quality presentations."

Strategies for Cost-Effective Compliance

Mark Riedel-Bash, Stormwater Program Coordinator
Oregon Department of Environmental Quality

Luncheon Keynote Address:

Jenifer McIntyre
, Ph.D, Assistant Professor Aquatic Toxicology
Washington State University, School of the Environment

Dr. McIntyre is passionate about science that brings about change. In 1997 her research led to the ban of a pulp mill effluent used as a road dust suppressant, and in 2004 her work on contaminant bioaccumulation led the Washington State Department of Health to issue a fish consumption advisory for several fish in Lake Washington. Her research in 2010 on olfactory neurotoxicity of copper in coho salmon helped pass legislation in Washington and California that phases out copper and other metals in brake pads.

She will share insights from her current work, which focuses on the ecotoxicology of stormwater runoff and the biological effectiveness of green stormwater infrastructure.
