Infiltration as a stormwater management practice

January 19, 2023

10:00 am – 12:00 pm
Location: Online

Stormwater infiltration, when appropriate, is a preferred stormwater management practice that provides communities, industry and professionals opportunities to reduce runoff volumes, decrease pollutant loads to surface waters, and enhance shallow groundwater recharge. The first 2023 Minnesota Stormwater Seminar Series will present some of the challenges in infiltration as a stormwater management practice, discuss ways to address some of those challenges, and highlight current research and resources available to practitioners and professionals. The presentation topics include:

  • Infiltration on contaminated sites
  • Infiltration when faced with compacted soils
  • Measuring infiltration and assessing the rate and effectiveness of infiltration
  • Infiltration impacts to shallow groundwater
  • Infiltration with amended soils
  • Resources for practitioners and professionals including where infiltration resources are in the Minnesota Stormwater Manual.
