2022 VUSP STORMWATER MANAGEMENT SYMPOSIUM
More than 350 engineers, researchers, planners and other water-resources professionals gathered on Villanova’s campus Oct. 12 and 13 for the 2022 Pennsylvania Stormwater Management Symposium. Hosted by the Villanova Urban Stormwater Partnership (VUSP), the biennial symposium aims to promote green stormwater infrastructure to combat urban flooding and protect environmental quality.
This year’s symposium, which had a theme of “Infrastructure, Resilience, Equity,” included keynote presentations, technical sessions and moderated panel discussions, as well as almost 50 abstracts from the stormwater community, research updates from VUSP researchers and booths from vendors. Originally set to take place in 2021, the symposium – VUSP’s 12th since 1998 – was delayed a year in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Part of the Villanova Center for Resilient Water Systems, VUSP operates with a mission to advance the evolving field of sustainable stormwater management and foster the development of public and private partnerships through research. The next Stormwater Symposium, VUSP’s 13th, will be held in fall 2024.
