Cornell Cooperative Extension of Orange County will be hosting a Stormwater Management Training series
beginning on Thursday, February 22, 2018. The program offers a five-part series of workshops for professionals
involved in stormwater management. Professionals will be able to learn about the latest trends and standards along
with new techniques and evolving research, policies and performance data change. The trainings are designed to
provide private and public sector administrators, consultants, architects, planners and administrators with up-to-date
techniques. The program emphasizes the standards in New York State, based on NYS-DEC’s August 2010
Stormwater Design Manual, the NYS-DEC Erosion and Sediment Control Manual, FEMA flood standards, and
related permits, and also examines national standards and future trends. All trainings emphasize applications to realworld
conditions, and involve hands-on, group, and individual exercises.
Trainings for the workshop series include:
April 18: Stormwater Filtration and Infiltration Practices
This class will examine the essential aspects and design standard of stormwater practices that use filtration and

importantly: long term maintenance. Numerous design examples, case studies and class exercises will be provided.
May 23: Stream Restoration
This class will explore the natural stream restoration techniques developed by CWP, NYSDEC, USACE, and NRCS
that can be used to restore the resilience of waterways, and to reduce flooding and pollution impacts. Beginning with

numerous site specific practices available for clean-up, repair, and restoration of stream channels, including
bioengineering, de-channelization, revetments, j-hooks, drops, jacks, deflectors, weirs and veins. Numerous design
examples and case studies will be provided.
