The Coalition, in partnership with the DuPage River Salt Creek Workgroup and The Conservation Foundation, hosts several technical workshops each year including two Chloride Reduction Workshops each fall focusing on Public Roads and Parking Lots & Sidewalks. Check our Chlorides & Winter Deicing page periodically to find local workshops.
Best Management Practice Seminar (Beyond the Basics)
The Conservation Foundation coordinates the Beyond the Basics Stormwater Best Management Practices (BMP) Seminar approximately every 18 months. The BMP Seminar highlights successful BMP implementation projects, such as the Warrenville Road and the Morton Arboretum permeable pavers projects and others. One goal of the seminar is to demonstrate that BMP projects need not be cost prohibitive. The targeted audience includes: elected officials, plan commissioners, planners, public works managers, engineers, developers and real estate professionals. DuPage County provides input to help develop the seminar topic, in addition to financial support. For more information, please contact Jennifer Hammer.
