In this webinar, we break down these ever-more complex industrial stormwater permit requirements into understandable and actionable best practices on how to setup a robust program from a centralized records system to a dedicated stormwater team. Our presenters will dive into the risks associated with non-compliance including examples of poorly setup programs and the financial ramifications of enforcement actions and lawsuits.

Arid and Semiarid Soils: Characteristics and Challenges for Revegetation, Reclamation, and Mitigation

Revegetation, reclamation, and mitigation become increasingly difficult as water becomes the most limiting factor for plant growth. These problems often are compounded in semiarid and arid regions by salinity, which further restricts plant growth, and sodicity, which destroys soil structure. The inability to establish surface vegetative cover exacerbates problems with both wind and water erosion. This presentation will address which soil and climate properties to evaluate to predict the success of revegetation efforts, and identify methods to address the specific management challenges encountered in working with arid and semiarid region soils.
