Webinar: Using Climate Change Informed Precipitation Metrics for Water Quality Planning

Jan 11 @ 2:00 pm – 3:00 pm

On Jan. 11, 2022 from 2-3 p.m. EST, the National 303(d)/TMDL Webinar Series will host a webinar on using precipitation metrics in water quality planning activities such as TMDLs.

Climate change is shifting precipitation patterns worldwide, with major impacts on water quality and efforts to restore impaired waters. As the pace of change accelerates, it will become increasingly important to consider projections of future precipitation in water quality protection and restoration efforts.

The webinar will feature Michelle Miro, PhD, Water Resources Engineer at the RAND Corporation, who will present on incorporating climate projections into Intensity-Duration-Frequency (IDF) Curves. Miro will demonstrate using future projected IDF curves developed for the Chesapeake Bay Watershed as a case study to illustrate how to use climate projections and think about future climate scenarios and uncertainty for planning and design.

Register for the webinar, which is free and open to the public. A webinar recording will be available online for those who cannot join on January 11.

Speaker Bio
Dr. Miro is water resources engineer at the RAND Corporation with a broad portfolio of work that supports international, federal and local emergency, infrastructure and resource management agencies with climate adaptation, disaster resilience and recovery, and water resources planning. She is a co-investigator for the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Mid-Atlantic Regional Integrated Sciences and Assessments (MARISA) program, where she leads climate adaptation and stormwater management research. She holds an MS in Civil Engineering from the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign and a PhD in Civil Engineering from the University of California, Los Angeles.

About the National 303(d)/TMDL Webinar Series

11th U.S. Symposium on Harmful Algae @ Hilton Albany

Oct 23 – Oct 28 all-day

The theme for the U.S. Symposium on Harmful Algae is Science to Support Solutions from Shore to Shore.” From freshwater to marine systems, the prevalence of harmful algal blooms (HABs) is a national environmental challenge, and solutions are needed. Celebrating this event in New York – the only state with Great Lake shorelines, marine coasts, and the diverse range of ecosystems between these extremes – creates an ideal setting to discuss progress in understanding algal bloom ecology and the solutions necessary to prevent and reduce HABs.

This conference is open to all registrants. Attendees will include national representatives and researchers from academia; state, federal, tribal, and municipal governments; the private sector; and watershed organizations. Registration will open in Spring 2022.

The symposium is coordinated by NEIWPCC, New York State Department of Environmental Conservation, and U.S. Geological Survey with support from the U.S. National Office for Harmful Algal Blooms at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution.
