Annual Conference

Save-the-Date for CASQA's 14th Annual Conference!

Connecting the Drops from Summit to Sea

We look forward to seeing you at the 2018 CASQA Annual Conference at the Riverside Convention Center, October 15-17, 2018.

Check back here periodically in mid and late April 2018 for announcements about the following:

  • Registration, including exhibitor, sponsorship, and advertising opportunities
    • Contact us if you would like to commit to a sponsorship in advance of registration opening
  • 2018 Call for Presentations and Posters
  • 2018 Call for CASQA Award Nominations

In 2017 over 1100 stormwater professionals were in attendance and similar numbers are expected for 2018. The conference will feature training workshops, technical sessions, and poster presentations on wide-ranging stormwater and water management topics with a focus around the conference theme, as well as the largest exposition of products and services yet held at a CASQA conference. The conference offers a unique opportunity to interact with professionals in the stormwater field. Each year the conference draws leading members of the stormwater community including local, state, and federal decision makers, stormwater program coordinators, contractors, consultants, engineers, lawyers, scientists, and planners. You won't want to miss it!

CASQA is the largest professional association dedicated to stormwater quality issues. For over a quarter century, CASQA has assisted municipalities, special districts, businesses, the state of California, and the United States Environmental Protection Agency (U.S. EPA) in developing and implementing effective stormwater quality management programs in response to municipal, industrial, and construction National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) stormwater permit requirements.
