Denver Stormwater Conference

If you represent a company that is committed to, or curious about, stormwater permit compliance in the Rocky Mountain Region, you should take a couple minutes to check out the attached flyer and conference schedule below. About 200 people attend every year from the EPA, CDPHE, municipalities, contractors, consultants and BMP suppliers. The conference is very informative and provides a unique opportunity to network with folks in the stormwater industry in a very relaxed setting.


One doesn’t have to be an IECA Member to attend. If you are not a member you will just have to provide a basic profile for billing. The cost is very reasonable for a one-day conference and breakfast and lunch are provided. Click on the registration link below if you are interested.
