Changing Rivers: Enhancing the natural and social wellbeing of Ohio alongside more floods and warmer temperatures.  

Co-hosting organizations: Water Management Association of Ohio (WMAO), TerrAqua (a cross-disciplinary student organization at Ohio State and WMAO affiliate), Ohio Stormwater Association, Ohio State’s Byrd Polar and Climate Research Center, the Ohio Water Resources Center, and Friends of the Lower Olentangy Watershed


Ohio’s rivers are changing. Increased heavy precipitation events and warmer temperatures are two probable scenarios that aquatic systems in the Buckeye State will experience through climate change. The purpose of this event is to explore the specific issues of stormwater management and regional extreme rainfall events and to connect these changes to empirical research on the biotic diversity in Ohio’s streams and rivers, and on the socioeconomic health of human communities. This session will explore the emerging field of “ecohydroclimatology,” which utilizes atmospheric science to assess both temperature and precipitation changes, greenhouse gas effects, human-created landscape changes, including the building of impervious surfaces, and their interactions with the movement of water and aquatic biological conditions.

 

Topical experts will specifically address 1) leading strategies to monitor stormwater and precipitation flashes in waterbodies, 2) stormwater engineering tools, the use of green infrastructure and policy/communication strategies to prevent flooding in vulnerable homes and neighborhoods, 3) using aquatic biota to express overall stream and river conditions and as a measure of Clean Water Act management program effectiveness with a focus on stormwater.

 

In coordination with the Water Management Association of Ohio (WMAO), as well as TerrAqua (a cross-disciplinary student organization at Ohio State and WMAO affiliate), Ohio Stormwater Association, Ohio State’s Byrd Polar and Climate Research Center, the Ohio Water Resources Center, and Friends of the Lower Olentangy Watershed, this event will feature extensive networking and educational opportunities. A two-hour extended (in-person only) session on stormwater management and rainfall events on specific community planning resources and aquatic biodiversity issues. The extended session of the program (9:50 a.m. to 11:45 a.m.) will be worth 2 CEU and PDH hours.
