Flood Plain Management

To promote the common interest in reducing flood losses and to encourage the protection and enhancement of natural floodplain values...


Sacramento Luncheons

The Floodplain Management Association and the American Public Works Association – Sacramento Chapter – Integrated Water Resources Committee are Co-Sponsoring the April Sacramento Luncheon

WHEN: Thursday, April 19th, 11:30 a.m. - 1:00 p.m.

WHERE: City of Sacramento Utilities Office, 1395 35th Ave., Sacramento, CA 95822
Solon Room – Located in the building behind the Administration Building

TOPIC: Stormwater and dry weather urban runoff can contribute to flooding, pollution of water bodies,
and damage to environmental habitat. Capture and use of stormwater through practices like Low
Impact Development (LID) can prevent and/or mitigate these impacts, as well as supplement water
supply. These practices can be integrated with other regional water management and watershed
stewardship efforts to plan and implement projects and programs that take into account the many
needs of and demands on a watershed.

The presentation will summarize the intent and content of the Sacramento Region’s Stormwater
Resources Plan (SWRP) development, focusing on the challenges and resolutions involved. Examples
include development of methodologies for identifying and prioritizing projects, quantifying relevant
benefits, and creation of a “living document,” which is adaptively managed to allow stakeholders to
modify and improve watershed management and develop and implement future projects.

SPEAKER: Maureen Kerner is a registered professional engineer and holds a BS and MS in civil and
environmental engineering from the University of Wisconsin, Madison and Oregon State University
respectively. For over a decade, she has served as a research engineer with the Office of Water
Programs at California State University, Sacramento, providing assistance in stormwater management,
design, construction, monitoring, and data assessment, including LID implementation.  She has managed
multiple grants from the State Water Resources Control Board including development of the California
Phase II Low Impact Development (LID) Sizing Tool, implementation of the City of Sacramento LID
standards at California State University, Sacramento, and coordination of a Stormwater Resource Plan
for the American River Basin.  Maureen also serves as the associate director for the newly established
EPA Region 9 Environmental Finance Center at Sacramento State.
