The 2016 California Stormwater Quality Association (CASQA) Annual Conference will explore the shifting attitudes toward urban stormwater—from a flood control problem, nuisance, and pollutant source to an important resource for groundwater recharge, water supply, and habitat management. The conference will highlight integrated regional and watershed planning processes, multi-benefit projects, and creative governance that showcase recent innovations.
