Keynote address at Sustainable Stormwater Symposium

Stillwater Sciences' president, Derek Booth, along with three other regionally and nationally recognized stormwater experts presented at the Sustainable Stormwater Symposium in Portland, OR, September 16-17, 2009.  The purpose of the Symposium is to provide stormwater professionals an increased understanding of current stormwater planning, design, and implementation approaches. Dr. Booth, who recently co-authored a book section titled "Streams and urbanization" within The water environment of cities, has published numerous other articles on the subject.

The 4th Annual symposium was hosted by the Oregon Section of the Association of Civil Engineers Environment and Water Resources Group (ASCE-EWRG) along with the Oregon chapter of the American Public Works Association (APWA).  The symposium included a river boat tour on a replica of an 1870s paddlwheel boat, invited speaker presentations, a poster session, and a bike tour ending at the Bridgeport Brew Pub, known for its sustainable brewing practices.
