BACKGROUND: Since 2003, the Champaign County Stormwater Partnership has collaborated to achieve compliance with our MS4 stormwater permits. We are fortunate to enjoy a great working relationship with each other and those in our community. Cooperation between our partners allows us to address stormwater issues on a watershed basis. This biennial stormwater conference gathers stormwater practitioners throughout the state of Illinois to discuss emerging topics in stormwater management and green infrastructure techniques. We strive to bring relevant information and harbor networking opportunities for the following audience: municipalities, government, University faculty, staff and students, park districts, churches, watershed groups, residential and commercial property owners, management companies, and private consultants.
