Mastering Flows

Step into the realm where professionals adeptly manage substantial and complex water flows every day, ensuring community safety and environmental integrity

Stormwater & Watershed / Collections Systems & Conveyance

You work “outside the fence” where urban development, public health, and environmental management meet the neighbors.

On the collections side, you face gray infrastructure operational challenges of wastewater conveyance. Effective pumping strategies, aging systems, flushable wipes, safety issues, and infiltration and inflow are on your mind.

On the stormwater side, you build green infrastructure to boost flood resilience and leverage data to forecast how storms will affect everyone. Together, you often work across jurisdictions and systems to create the needed plans to keep flows contained where they belong.

Operations Challenge

Operations Challenge is the water sector's best professional development program wrapped up in a competition.
