COVID-19 Stormwater Permitting and Compliance Monitoring Panel Discussion

  • Registration Closed

On behalf of IECA and Burns & McDonnell, we hope you, your family, and your staff are safe and healthy in these challenging times!  With the constantly changing circumstances, we wanted to provide an opportunity for peer-to-peer discussion addressing stormwater permitting and compliance monitoring impacts from COVID-19. 

COVID-19 is having a significant global impact on the health and economic welfare of citizens. These events have directly impacted the normal practices and operations of regulatory agencies and the construction industry throughout the United States.  How have agencies and developers adapted their day-to-day operations in this new environment?  What practices are being implemented to balance the health and safety of employees while continuing to perform essential services to meet permitting schedules and maintain compliance with monitoring requirements?

IECA and Burns & McDonnell are co-hosting a virtual panel discussion with four panelists representing stormwater permitting, compliance monitoring, regulatory review, and onsite BMP installation to address these issues. The panel discussion will focus on how the stormwater permitting, agency review, BMP installation and compliance monitoring have been impacted by COVID-19.

We would like to invite you to join us to listen in on the panel discussion. The format will also include an opportunity to virtually ask questions and comment on the information shared.
