2012 Missouri MS4 Stormwater Conference


On February 28 and 29, more than 85 stormwater managers came together in Columbia Missouri to network and discuss upcoming changes in state and federal regulations. As of the 2010 census, seven more communities in Missouri met federal thresholds requiring stormwater management. Currently, there are 157 communities struggling to meet permit requirements. To meet this need, the conference opened with a session on developing a stormwater program. Boone County's Counselor was on hand to provide guidance on state statutes and help define the role for community leaders. During a parallel track, DNR introduced the new Missouri Green Infrastructure Guide. The main conference started after lunch with topics including: Changes to water quality standards, classified waters, site-specific permitting, and surviving an EPA audit. On the second day of the conference, topics included a discussion on educational campaigns, conducting site inspections, water quality monitoring, and maintaining stormwater facilities. The event was held east of Columbia at Bradford Farms Research Facility on Rangeline Rd. There were 135 people in attendance.
