October 5, 2010 - 12:00am

The RMP Annual Meeting was held on Tuesday, October 5, 2010 at the Oakland Museum. The meeting focused on linking the watersheds and San Francisco Bay, and featured keynote presentations from stormwater programs around the country as well as updates on research and management of stormwater in the Bay Area. Tom Schueler, from the Chesapeake Stormwater Network, and John Sansalone, from the University of Florida, described stormwater monitoring programs in their respective regions, and illustrated some of the common and unique aspects of runoff in different urban areas. Following a line-up of local managers and researchers, the meeting concluded with an update on sediment science and management - a follow up to the 2009 meeting on Bay sediment - and two updates on contaminants of emerging concern. About 160 people attended the meeting, and feedback on the meeting and the Pulse of the Estuary was very positive.
