The fourth annual Storm Water Awareness Week event took place during September 21-25, 2015. Participants all over the State of California learned about a wide variety of storm water topics – including some interesting keynote sessions, which you can watch here! All for free, of course.

Keynote 1: Jeff McLain and Melanie Okoro – Joining us in the first keynote session of Storm Water Awareness Week 2015 is Jeff McLain, a Division Manager with NOAA Fisheries (west coast region). In keeping with this year’s fishing theme, Jeff and Melanie will be answering the question of why a storm water agency is concerned about fish.

Keynote 2: Laurel Warddrip – We are excited to have Laurel Warddrip (Industrial and Construction Program Manager with the State Water Resources Control Board) joining us for the second keynote session during Storm Water Awareness Week 2015. This session will be a live question-and-answer program, where participants and viewers can submit questions during the broadcast about the new Industrial General Permit.

Keynote 3: Michelle Workman and Robyn Bilski – Michelle Workman is the Fisheries Supervisor and Wildlife Biologist with East Bay Municipal Utilities District. Robyn Bilski is a Fisheries Biologist II, also with EBMUD. Both Michelle and Robyn will be joining us for our last keynote session and will discuss the impact water quality has on local salmon and steelhead.
