Tampa Water Congress Attended

I was in Tampa, Florida last week attending the ASCE/EWRI World Water Resources and Environmental Congress.

I presented three technical papers on stormwater engineering and management. The audience was awake and interested.

I also organized and presided over the (ASCE/EWRI Stormwater BMPs Certification Guidelines) Task Committee kickoff meeting. The meeting was attended by 32 committee members and interested parties. We formed six subcommittees to tackle six issues simultaneously. There are 52 committee members across the country thus far. I am fortunate to be able to work with so many professionals in the stormwater field through this new task committee.

I had a good time there. The only regret was that I was too busy to take a break and go to the beach. Maybe next time.

The photo above was taken by me from my hotel room balcony looking at Garrison Channel, one of the several channels for boat traffic in and around Port of Tampa.

My ablum contains additional photos of the navigation channels in Tampa.
