The 2019 Indiana Association for Floodplain and Stormwater Management (INAFSM) Annual Conference was held in Fort Wayne September 4 - 6 with the theme “H20 Tech" featuring many vendors and presentations focused on emerging stormwater technologies. I attended this conference for the first time and, as an environmental scientist at the beginning of my career, my experience was filled with new insights.
Note: Tyler Hammerle is a project engineer at Wessler Engineering and just attended his first Indiana Water Environment Association (IWEA) Annual Conference. We asked him to write about some things he took away from the 2019 technical sessions he attended. Below is a summary of a presentation on activated sludge, in Tyler's own words.
