Webinar Description:

LID/Post-construction Water Quality Treatment

Are you concerned with the restoration and protection of vital water ways? Do you want to help reduce pollution in your local watershed? Attend this information-packed webinar on post-construction water quality treatment. Learn about the latest research and how to design and implement treatment with specially designed compost products to reduce urban and post-construction storm water pollutants.

See how to:
· Mimic and restore the natural hydrology of a site
· Permanently reduce stormwater runoff through biofiltration
· Reduce turbidity and TSS
· Naturally absorb hydrocarbons from urban runoff
· Remove harmful bacteria from combined sewers, pet parks, and agriculture
· Reduce phosphorus and nitrogen
· Filter particulate and soluble heavy metals

Dr. Britt Faucette, Ph.D., is an Ecosystem Scientist, Certified Professional of Erosion & Sediment Control (CPESC), and Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design Accredited Professional (LEED AP).

Dr. Faucette currently directs research and technical services programs for Filtrexx International. He earned his Ph.D. from the Odom School of Ecology at the University of Georgia where he researched soil-water-plant performances of various BMPs used in soil erosion and storm water management applications; served as a state specialist in storm water management, organics recycling, and pollution prevention programs in the Department of Biological and Agricultural Engineering; and served as an adjunct professor in the School of Environmental Design.

Britt coordinates international research, design, and training services for the stormwater and organic materials management industries and serves on technical committees with the American Society of Test Methods (ASTM), Green Roofs for Healthy Cities (GRHC), the Board of Trustees for the US Composting Council Research & Education Foundation (CCREF), the Professional Development Committee and the Standards and Practices Committee of the International Erosion Control Association (IECA), and is Chairperson of the Georgia Soil and Water Conservation Commission (GA SWCC) Technical Advisory Committee to revise the state Erosion & Sediment Control Manual.

In 2008 he was the recipient of the Annual Clean Water Award presented by the US Composting Council. He has authored over 20 peer-reviewed publications, over 100 popular press articles, developed federal and state specifications on organic materials used in erosion and sediment control and storm water management, worked with foreign governments, taught graduate students, consulted on organic materials management and storm water related projects in 15 countries, has been awarded nearly $500,000 in state and federal research grants, has conducted seminars and trainings at over 100 national and regional conferences, and has published two books on research and design elements of organic materials used in storm water management.
