Description: The VT DEC Stormwater Program is pleased to offer additional training specific to designer’s application of the 2017 Vermont Stormwater Management Manual (VSMM).  This VSMM Technical Workshop will be an opportunity for the Stormwater Program to provide updates on implementation of the Manual since the effective date, including updates related to permit application materials, instructions, and guidance.  The program will identify frequently asked questions, issues or challenges encountered during transition to the new Manual, and offer some solutions and guidance to ensure submitted permit applications are technically complete, meet the requirements, and allow for an efficient, yet effective permitting process.

The workshop is expected to review a stormwater design example, including a project design that was prepared under the 2017 VSMM design requirements.  The Stormwater Program will also set aside time for questions from the design community to specifically discuss issues encountered or other design challenges.

The event is going to be more in depth than an overview of the VSMM, and is not intended to cover the overall framework of the manual.  Participants are expected to have a general understanding of the applicability and requirements set forth in the Manual.  Please come prepared to ask questions.

Past Training

The Stormwater Program offered a series of trainings in May 2017 that provided an overview of the 2017 VSMM and associated application materials.
