This two-day seminar will discuss funding opportunities for stormwater projects in Northeastern Illinois. Benefit Cost Analysis required as part of many grant applications will also be discussed on the first day. The second day will be dedicated to setting up a stormwater utility. Day 1 covers a variety of funding opportunities available to municipalities for stormwater projects. Federal, State, and County funding programs will be discussed.

Day 2 will provide step-by-step guidance on setting up a stormwater utility beginning with an overview of stormwater utilities and a high-level feasibility analysis for communities considering a stormwater utility. Then detailed instruction will be provided for each step needed to implement and administer a stormwater utility will be provided. For more details on the course please see the attached agenda. Village of Niles Funding Needs Example. IDNR Capital Flood Damage Reduction Program. Chief of the Northeastern Illinois Regulatory Programs Section will present an overview of the Illinois Department of Natural Resources, Office of Water Resources regulatory programs, specifically the floodway management, the public water management and the dam safety programs. LOMR review authority on behalf of FEMA within the State of Illinois.

CFM with Illinois State Water Survey’s MT-2 processing team will provide guidance for successfully revising FEMA maps in Illinois. This two-day seminar will prepare participants to set up and run EPA-SWMM models with a combination of lectures and hands-on examples taught by David Sample, Ph. David is an Associate Professor of Biological Systems Engineering at Virgina Tech, his research focuses upon improving the performance of urban stormwater systems through modeling and monitoring. Day 1 covers an introduction to EPA5SWMM, its use in modeling urban watersheds and designing green infrastructure-based BMPs. Day 2 covers intermediate topics in using SWMM such as advanced detention pond design, water quality modeling, combined sewer modeling, and modeling of dual drainage systems.

Each participant will need to bring a laptop with EPA SWMM installed. Participants will learn the concepts of basic HEC-RAS modeling, which includes modeling bridges, culverts and floodways. Day one, you will develop a river model, run simulations and review program output. An overview of the computational methods and data requirements will be provided.

Day two, you will learn how to add roadway crossings with bridges or culverts to your model. All workshops include a review, with an emphasis on output analysis. Each participant will need to bring a laptop with HEC-RAS 5. HECRAS 2D: Are you ready for the revolution in the world of floodplain modeling? So You Think You’re an Expert? Lake Springfield’s Spaulding Dam: How does is work?

This three-day seminar will prepare participants to set up and run HEC-RAS 2D with a combination of lectures and hands-on workshops taught by instructors James Heyen, P. Participants will also learn how to effectively view and analyze results. This seminar assumes that the participant is familiar with HEC-RAS analysis. Lectures and hands-on computer workshops will provide the background required use HEC-RAS to model 2D unsteady flow hydraulics. Participants will learn how to develop a stable and calibrated 2D flow model as well as obtain valuable insights in methods for minimizing computation errors and instabilities for 2D unsteady hydraulic models. See the attached agenda for more information. Each participant should have previous experience with HEC-RAS modeling and will need to bring a laptop with HEC-RAS 5.

3-day GIS for Hydrologic and Hydraulic Modeling seminar, taught by WEST Consultants on September 19-21, 2016 in Woodridge, IL. Attendees have the option to attend 1, 2, or all 3 days of this seminar. Please see the attached agenda for a more detailed course description. Sarah Bengston is the lead GIS Analyst at WEST Consultants with 9 years of experience in GIS, mapping, and hazard assessment. NFIP Reform and CRS, August 13, 2013. This three-day seminar will prepare participants to set up and run HEC-RAS unsteady flow applications with a combination of lectures and hands-on workshops taught by renowned instructor Vernon Bonner, P. Participants will learn the concepts of basic unsteady flow modeling, as well as how to model bridges, inline and lateral structures, storage areas, and floodways.

Lectures and hands-on computer workshops will provide the background required to apply the key features in RAS Version 4 and to evaluate the computed results.
