Objective: To provide professionals in the stormwater management field with a detailed understanding of a public domain hydrologic/hydraulic modeling tool, EPA-SWMM (U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Storm Water Management Model) and it use in design of practices intended to control and mitigate the negative effects of urban runoff. Note: A distinguishing characteristic of this workshop is its focus upon applied use of SWMM. While several workshops are available for proprietary versions of SWMM, this workshop is one of the few that focuses strictly upon EPA SWMM.
Target Audience: Engineers, scientists, planners, and regulators who have the responsibility of designing stormwater control measures (SCMs) and/or implementing watershed improvement programs. In developing this workshop, it is assumed that participants have:
- A working knowledge of hydrology, hydraulics, stormwater control measures (SCMs, also known as best management practices or BMPs), and familiarity with computers.
- A working laptop running Microsoft Windows 7 or greater, MS Office 2010 or 2013, and at least one USB port is required to participate.
Previous experience with hydrologic modeling is desired. SWMM is available for download at: http://www2.epa.gov/water-research/storm-water-management-model-swmm#downloads
The workshop has previously received 0.7 Continuing Education Credits from the Virginia Tech Office of Continuing Education, equivalent to 7 professional development hours.
David J. Sample, Ph.D., P.E., Department of Biological Systems Engineering based at the Hampton Roads Agricultural Research and Extension Center, Virginia Tech. Dr. Sample received a BS and ME from the University of Florida in Environmental Engineering and a PhD from the University of Colorado in Civil Engineering. Dr. Sample had approximately 30 years of experience in consulting, municipal, and academic water resources engineering. Dr. Sample is a registered engineer in Virginia, and is a Diplomate of the American Academy of Water Resources Engineers. In 2009, Dr. Sample was appointed to the U.S. Chesapeake Bay Program Science and Technical Advisory Committee (STAC). He is an active member of the American Society of Civil Engineers and its Environmental Water Resources Institute (EWRI) and the American Society of Agricultural and Biological Engineers (ASABE).
Nasrin Alamdari, PhD student in BSE, Virginia Tech, M.S. in Civil and Environmental Engineering, Tennessee Technological University, B.S. in Civil Engineering, University of Shiraz, Iran. Research focus: Development and application of GIS-aided water quality models and decision support systems (DSS) at different scales varying from a small urban catchment to a large basin to evaluate the effects of climate change on performance of BMPs.
