Colorado Association of Stormwater and Floodplain Managers

Andrew Earles, Shannon Tillack, Julia Traylor and Natalie Phares are looking forward to the upcoming Colorado Association of Stormwater and Floodplain Managers (CASFM) conference next month.  It will run from September 19˗22 in Breckenridge, Colorado.

WWE will be well represented at the conference this year with presentations related to our work on the Aspen Mud and Debris Flow Analysis, the Estes Park Hydrology project, and information on low impact development (LID) for a site in Boulder that has been observed for nearly 20 years.

Andrew will be presenting on the Aspen work with April Long, the City of Aspen’s stormwater manager, and Catherine Berg, who assisted with this work while at WWE and who now is with Pitkin County. For the Estes Park Hydrology presentation, Andrew will co-present with Kevin Houck of the Colorado Water Conservation Board, Tina Kurtz of the Town of Estes Park and Rigel Rucker of AECOM. Natalie Phares will take the lead on the presentation on the LID site in Boulder along with Bill Wenk of Wenk Associates.  She will also teach two units of the Floodplain 101 course.

Julia Traylor has played an important role in the conference by helping to organize the extracurricular activities, and she was also a contributor to the work on the Estes Park Hydrology project. The gang hopes to see many “Currents” readers at the CASFM conference.
