The 2016 Charleston Area Stormwater Pond Management Conference will provide a forum to give the latest information, resources, and tools on stormwater pond management for the Lowcountry community. It is open to stormwater pond owners/HOA representatives, property management professionals, pond management professionals, local government staff, regulatory and and resource agency staff, and others who deal with stormwater pond planning and design, permitting, maintenance, or with water quality issues in general.

The conference is divided into two specialized tracks for the pond owner/residential audience and the professional/technical audience. Sessions will provide up-to-date science-based information, hands-on training, and tools to improve pond management and function. It will also provide the opportunity to interact with organizations and businesses in the mond management industry, regulatory agencies, and pond owners.  

Topics include coastal water quality, integrated weed management, shoreline management and erosion control, pond inspection and maintenance, funding and budgeting for projects, upland management for healthy ponds, dredging and sediment disposal, communication strategies, and more.
