Understanding Advanced Stormwater Management Techniques

Course Code: EW0303CA17

Stormwater Management for Engineers

Bookmark and Share
Date & Time

October 14, 2016
8:30am - 4:30pm (Check in time: 8:00am)


This course will focus on the design, construction and maintenance of bioretention, gravel wetland, constructed wetland and infiltration type stormwater management BMPs. Although promoted over the past 10 years by the NJDEP, advanced stormwater management techniques still tend to be incorrectly constructed, utilized improperly or inadequately maintained. This has often led to basin failures or conditions that compromise the functionality of these BMPs.

This course will review the design, construction and maintenance fundamentals associated with these techniques, with particular attention given to gravel wetland and bioretention BMPs.

Meet Your Instructors for Advanced Stormwater Management Training

Faculty Coordinator

Dr. Stephen Souza is the President of Princeton Hydro, LLC. His academic training and professional experience encompass three primary areas of expertise: aquatic resource restoration and management, aquatic ecosystem sampling and investigations, and stormwater quality modeling and management. He has implemented a wide array of nonpoint source and stormwater pollution control strategies, including created wetlands, bioretention basins, infiltration/recharge systems, sandfilters, riparian buffers and other bio-engineered "green" stormwater techniques. In addition, Dr. Souza frequently provides expert testimony and technical guidance regarding the ecosystem impacts of storm runoff and industrial discharges. He serves as the stormwater quality management consultant for a number of municipalities and regional resource conservation groups located throughout New Jersey.

Additional Instruction

Geoffrey Goll, P.E., is the Vice President of Princeton Hydro, LLC and a licensed professional engineer in a number of states in the northeast. He has extensive experience in geotechnical engineering, stormwater management, hydrology, floodplain hydraulics, environmental assessments, and environmental permitting. Mr. Goll has provided engineering design services, testimony, and review of stormwater management facilities for public and private clients, and has provided guidance in the development of watershed management plans and stormwater ordinance development in both New Jersey and Pennsylvania. He is well versed in stormwater runoff theory and modeling and has extensive knowledge of soil infiltration testing and design methods, as is required by the Phase II Stormwater Management Regulations.
