Webinar – Beneath the Surface: Exploring Underground Stormwater Detention Material Options – Dec. 7

News | December 1, 2023 | By:

Contech Engineered Solutions presents the webinar – Beneath the Surface: Exploring Underground Stormwater Detention Material Options – on December 7, 2023 at 2 p.m. EST. Participants earn 1 Professional Development Hour (PDH) and you can register here.

The choice of materials directly affects the performance, longevity, and costs of stormwater detention systems. A thorough understanding of available materials options empowers civil engineers to design stormwater detention systems that are efficient, cost-effective, and easy to maintain.

In this webinar, Contech engineers will give engineers the information they need to evaluate and select the best detention material for use on various sites.

What You Will Learn

How engineers solved stormwater storage challenges on four unique projects

Four material options for underground storage and when to use each one

How to reduce long-term maintenance costs by design with maintenance in mind
