    Presentation Abstract: 

    The State of Maryland is a national leader in stormwater management. Current stormwater regulations seek to minimize the impacts of urbanization on stream systems by conserving natural features, minimizing the use of impervious surfaces, and slowing runoff to reduce runoff volumes and rates by increasing evapotranspiration and infiltration. While there are numerous studies documenting improvements at the level of individual stormwater control measures, fewer studies have evaluated benefits at the watershed level. This seminar will describe the origin and history of the Maryland stormwater regulations and present results from a case study that compared the impacts of different types of stormwater management on watershed hydrology and channel stability. 

    Presenter Abstract: 

    Theresa (Tess) Wynn Thompson is an Associate Professor and Turner Faculty Fellow in the Department of Biological Systems Engineering at Virginia Tech.  She teaches courses in Fluvial Geomorphology, Stream Restoration, and Transport Processes.  Her research program focuses broadly on the restoration of stream and wetland systems, with particular emphasis on determining the fundamental processes involved in the erosion of cohesive streambanks;  developing more accurate tools for the design of wetland systems; and, developing management practices to minimize the impact of urbanization on stream ecosystems.
