The conversation continues as Torrent Resources wraps up the second installment of the Stormwater Speaker Series. The setting for our afternoon presentations was the beautiful Courtyard Marriott in Santa Ana, CA on Wednesday July 13, 2016. The overwhelming response from our previous campaigns was matched during the registration period for the Santa Ana event. Three weeks prior to the event, registration was FULL and we opted to expand seating and allow everyone to attend. With more guest speakers on the bill, a change in location, and an increase in attendance it was by far the most exciting event in the Speaker Series so far.
“This was my first introduction to the Torrent Resources [Stormwater] Speaker Series. I found it a very worthwhile event for data sharing and networking on topics related to stormwater and low impact development. The technical information presented was of high quality and quite valuable for my work. Looking forward to having the opportunity to participate in more events like these.”
-Christopher Solek, PhD, Council for Watershed Health
Individuals from Earth Systems Southwest, OC Public Works, Council for Watershed Health, and AMEC Foster Wheeler joined forces to present on topics ranging from groundwater recharge to estimating drywell infiltration rates. Over 24 civil engineering firms joined us for a hot lunch, four presentations, and a Q&A session that elevated the conversation about stormwater even higher. As stormwater regulations shift and change in California we feel it’s part of our job to ensure the engineering community is up to date on the most current information surrounding stormwater management.
“The Torrent Resources Stormwater Speaker Series is an excellent first step to moving forward the idea of water retention through the use of dry wells. There is little doubt that the combination of the Maxwell system with good geologic evaluations makes for a successful dry well solution. Earth Systems is pleased to be a participant in this important event.”
– Alexander Schriener, Jr., Associate Geologist, P.G.
The Stormwater Speaker Series has proven that the engineering community is eager to learn and converse about the topics that have dominated headlines and blogs for months. It’s obvious that the conversation about stormwater is quickly changing and Torrent is right there leading the way. Torrent Resources has installed thousands of MaxWell® Drainage Systems in Southern California and isn’t stopping there. With the second Stormwater Speaker Series under our belt Torrent plans to continue providing these educational seminars all over California.
