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.
Seven Wessler employees recently attended another successful Indiana Association of Floodplain and Stormwater Management (INAFSM) Conference. The INAFSM Conference always provides its attendees with informative presentations, field trips, and networking opportunities. Green infrastructure continues to be an important topic of discussion. Though many technologies were presented, multiple presentations at INAFSM this year discussed the topic of permeable pavement and the performance results based on application location, maintenance plans, climate, and overall design.
The 2016 Annual Conference of the Indiana Association for Floodplain and Stormwater Management, Inc., celebrating 20 years of commitment to floodplain and stormwater management, included more than 40 learning and plenary sessions, field trips, and networking opportunities. The presentations were divided into four learning tracks: Floodplain, Technical, MS4, and Stormwater. Throughout all tracks, education and outreach, low impact development, and a push towards green infrastructure were reoccurring themes.
