This training, originally scheduled for March 27, has been postponed due to COVID-19 concerns.  However, GMWEA plans to reschedule it for later this spring or summer, date to be determined.


If you have already signed up: We are still deciding on the best methods for refunding tuition or applying it to the rescheduled class.  We contact you soon.  


Overview: The session will cover the Vermont stormwater regulations and include a strong focus on design of stormwater treatment systems, facilitating compliance with the 2017 Vermont Stormwater Management Manual.  A full day's worth of training covering this comprehensive set of topics is a rare and valuable opportunity for Vermont’s stormwater practitioner community.

The course will be taught by Andres Torizzo, Watershed Consulting Associates, and Dave Marshall, Civil Engineering Associates, who together have four decades of experience designing and permitting stormwater projects in Vermont.

The course will include presentations, round-table discussion, and design case studies of several systems.  Topics include:

  • Rules, regulations, and thresholds
  • Permit types
  • Unified sizing criteria
  • Infiltration testing
  • Post-construction soil standards
  • Sourcing soils/media
  • Working with contractors
  • O&M issues
  • Inspection protocols, forms, types, schedules
  • Site feasibility analysis
  • 3-Acre Rule
  • Future changes and updates 


The fee for the course is $95 for GMWEA members and $135 for non-members (includes a GMWEA membership for 2020!). Lunch is not included.


Course date to be determined! Check back in early April!
