Mitigating TMDL Trauma Post Webinar

NPDES permit requirements can be met cost-effectively! Join James Riddle from Woolpert, Brandon Smith from YSI, and Chris Heyer from Aquatic Informatics to learn how Greenville County is using continuous water quality data to identify sources of nutrients better and significantly reduce TMDL implementation costs that were estimated to exceed $65 million in construction costs alone potentially.  

“Continuous data helps us quickly narrow into the source of the discharge and eliminate it. Quicker elimination of illicit discharges better meets our goal of reducing pollutant loads in our river and streams.” - Judy Wortkoetter, County Engineer, Greenville County.

When local governments face extreme costs to improve water quality, they must first clearly understand the real sources of the impairment. Continuous water quality monitoring provides high-resolution data for many parameters to evaluate long-term trends and real-time illicit discharges that can be tracked to the source. Attend this webinar to learn how to meet NPDES permit requirements with continuous water quality monitoring effectively.
