Environmental/Civil Engineer Isaac Dolan, a member of the REI Engineering Inc. team of Wausau, attended the EPA's New Requirements for Stormwater Management presentation in Wausau. The presentation was sponsored by the Wisconsin Green Building Association and Northcentral Technical College.

The presentation discussed how municipalities greater than 100,000 people have been obligated to find ways to better manage their stormwater and reduce the amount of runoff within their city limits. Examples were given for Cincinnati and Milwaukee on how these large cities have made or have not made agreements with the US EPA to reduce their runoff by a certain amount over the next couple decades. The presenters then informed us that the EPA will now be applying these requirements to municipalities less than 100,000 people, which will affect rural areas throughout the United States. Methods of stormwater control and management were discussed, including green roofs, blue roofs, cisterns, and natural channelization of stormwater runoff. The attendants were also informed on all the components that are required to construct a green roof, including the different membranes, growing media and specific vegetation.

REI Engineering meets the civil/survey and environmental/safety needs of business partners throughout the Midwest.
