Research Webinar Series: Stormwater Subsurface Gravel Wetlands in Vermont

Wednesday, November 18, 2020 - 12:00pm to 1:00pm
Online - Registration required

View a video recording of this webinar: "Stormwater Subsurface Gravel Wetlands in Vermont."

Andres Torizzo, Principal Hydrologist at Watershed Consulting, will explain ongoing research on the effectiveness of subsurface gravel wetlands on flow attenuation and phosphorus capture, and how chloride impacts performance. The research addresses a timely question, as many Vermont municipalities have focused state stormwater permit applications on use of subsurface gravel wetlands to meet impending phosphorus control requirements, but performance data from field installations is lacking.

This presentation describes work conducted as part of the Stormwater Subsurface Gravel Wetlands in Vermont project, which is funded by Lake Champlain Sea Grant and implemented by Watershed Consulting and partners.

The event will take place on Zoom, and registration is required. After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the webinar. To request a disability-related accommodation to participate in any of these programs, please contact Lake Champlain Sea Grant / Julianna White at 802-777-7017 or seagrant [at] no later than three weeks before your chosen date so we can assist you.
