Recap of May:

Gamal Hassan, the President/Senior River Mechanics Engineer for Hassan Water Resources presented on Drainage and Stormwater management for Linear Projects.  Held back at the Westwood Club, it was nice to see both familiar and some new faces in the attend the presentation.  The discussion covered the new changes in federal and state regulations to drainage, stormwater management and water quality, and erosion and sediment control designs as of June 30, 2019.  In addition to discussing the new Runoff Reduction and Energy Balance Methods Mr. Hassan also spoke on how to effectively use the exemptions as part of the new regulations.  Some of the notable tips included shrinking the project size as much as possible (following construction impacts rather than watershed area) and how to effectively utilize the percent quantity runoff exceptions.  In addition Mr. Hassan shared several project examples using the new methods and examples.  Thank you again to Gamal for sharing your tips and secrets when designing stormwater management of Linear Projects.
