Johnny Combs, founder of Paradigm Engineering, Ltd. and nationally recognized stormwater compliance consultant, will speak at the National Stormwater Summit with industry experts from across the country. The summit begins November 29 in San Diego, Calif. and consists of workshops in 26 cities in its coast-to-coast tour.
Combs will present an informative message on how to design and implement an effective stormwater compliance program. He will discuss Paradigm Engineering’s “7 Steps to Compliance” methodology and demonstrate how the process works successfully under the construction industry’s demanding circumstances. In addition to his presentation, Mr. Combs will also join a two-hour panel discussion that will focus on topical risk management strategies for the construction industry.
“Stormwater enforcement continues to be on the rise,” Combs said. “Events like this summit are great because it allows regulators, technical experts and the construction community to get on the same page. I’m excited to join these industry leaders to increase awareness and education on stormwater and risk management issues.”
The Summit arose out of the growing need to provide the construction industry a cutting edge program to meet the National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) permit requirements in the most effective and efficient manner possible.
Stormwater regulations are often complex and difficult to follow. To offset this, the National Stormwater Summit is designed to bring an unprecedented educational component to the building industry. It consists of a multi-tiered series of workshops, comprised of leaders who have combined their experience to incorporate the latest innovations in Best Management Practices (BMPs) and Best Available Technologies (BATs) for quality stormwater compliance.
