The MOA has recently updated its stormwater design criteria manual to require the use of Low Impact Development stormwater treatment where practical. The multi-year process is ongoing and was an exercise in patience and conflict resolution as much as developing sound engineering practices.
The session will be a moderated discussion with 3 panelists: Kristi Bischofberger, MOA Watershed Management Services Director; Jeff Urbanus, Watershed Hydrologist; and Janie Dusel, P.E., Principal at Alaska Water Resources. All three were heavily involved in developing and implementing the Design Criteria Manual, and had the difficult task of convincing seasoned engineers and the established development community that Green Infrastructure can be viable and effective in a winter city. Questions will also include administration of the MOA MS4 permit and some notably successful GI projects.
