Stu Stein, PE, D.WRE is slated to deliver a technical presentation titled “2D Modeling & Flooding Resiliency ” at StormCon 2022 on Tuesday, September 27, 2022 at the Gaylord National Resort and Convention Center in National Harbor, MD.
The presentation examines the use of two dimensional models of local drainage systems to mitigate the severity and impact of localized flooding from rainfall events. 2D models allow users to simulate rainstorm and flood conditions, the flow of water across the land surface, and its path into and within the area’s drainage system. These models can simulate the flood impacts of typical and extreme rainstorms, and can be used for long-term resilience and climate change planning under potential future climate conditions.
Stu is President of GKY & Associates and has more than 35 years of experience in water resources, hydrology, hydraulics, and water quality. He is an accomplished computer modeler, analyst, and trainer who has taught graduate courses in Urban Hydrology and Dynamic Modeling of Environmental Systems as an adjunct faculty member of Virginia Tech and has taught Water Supply Engineering, Systems Analysis, Environmental Engineering Systems Design, and Wastewater Engineering as an adjunct faculty member at Catholic University. He is the Conference Chair and Past President of the Virginia Lakes and Watersheds Association. Stu is a Professional Engineer and holds a Diplomate, Water Resources Engineer (D.WRE) certification from the American Academy of Water Resources Engineers.
StormCon is an annual technical conference for water resources professionals. It is dedicated to “advancing the science and practice of stormwater management.” This year’s conference will focus on six practice areas: green infrastructure; flood modeling and mitigation programs; permits and compliance; transportation and construction stormwater; BMP monitoring; and industrial stormwater management. Conference dates are September 26-28.
