Monitoring SCMs, Streams and Small Watersheds: A Primer for MS4 Communities

Stormwater control measures (SCMs) help maintain water quality and improve stream health and integrity by reducing the export of pollutants from the land to the waterway. For most MS4 communities, SCMs also assist in meeting various permit compliance related goals. The efficacy of SCMs in meeting and maintaining water quality standards and regulations vary due to differences in land use, drainage area, precipitation patterns, and other watershed characteristics. A comprehensive understanding of SCM performance will help MS4s and other relevant entities in conducting better life cycle assessments and improved understanding of maintenance needs.


This workshop will educate and train participants in different aspects of SCMs, stream and watershed monitoring, and data collection systems. The workshop will also introduce relevant data analysis approaches and reporting skills.


The training will be comprised of one full-day (Dec 8) hybrid workshop with in-class and field components and one half-day online (Dec 15) of additional data management strategies
