Stormwater Committee

The Stormwater Committee develops, recommends, supports, and conducts programs to promote the overall understanding of stormwater management strategies, including those related to operation, maintenance, and management practices in the Pacific Northwest Clean Water Association (PNCWA). Our committee members support PNCWA through pre-conference workshops, conference abstract submittal and presentations, supporting the recognition of stormwater professionals through the awards program, curating timely and relevant content for the PNCWA monthly digest, and more. 

We hold monthly conference calls to stay connected with our professional network. 

Get Involved

Being a member of the stormwater committee provides opportunities to develop professionally in the emerging stormwater management workforce, including opportunities to grow technically (such as learning holistic, cost-effective strategies for managing stormwater), networking with other stormwater professionals and innovators, developing leadership and communication skills and inspiring new ideas through collaboration. The stormwater committee is a collaborative team that works to promote effective information sharing, organize workshops, develop newsletter and learning content and inspire others. We've got big plans for the future and need your help. Join today! Some of our goals include: 

- Create a diversified stormwater committee with meaningful roles and leadership opportunities; reach out to committee members to learn more!
- Develop a pre-conference workshop.
- Evaluate other outreach and educational opportunities such as lunch-and-learns.
- Promote the stormwater industry through various communications.
- Encourage nominations for stormwater professionals and innovative stormwater projects.
- Increase abstracts for stormwater presentations at next years conference to provide a comprehensive stormwater track.
