Capturing Stormwater: Tapping the Resource

 This session explores the transformative potential of stormwater as a valuable resource in sustainable urban development. By rethinking traditional stormwater management practices, watersheds can mitigate flooding, enhance water quality, and create new opportunities for water reuse and conservation. Through Orange County Water District case studies and innovative approaches by surrounding cities and counties, attendees will gain insights into the economic, environmental, and social benefits of integrating stormwater management into urban planning and infrastructure.
Key Learning Objectives:
•    Understand the challenges and opportunities associated with stormwater management in urban environments.
•    Explore innovative strategies for capturing, treating, and utilizing stormwater to enhance water sustainability.
•    Discuss successful case studies and best practices from OCWD implementing integrated stormwater management solutions using Forecast Informed Reservoir Operations (FIRO).
