Short and long-term successes of stormwater programs are built on planning, design, engineering and stakeholder support among other critical elements. Building a network of stormwater advocates is important for public acceptance and understanding of how stormwater impacts water resources. There are several levels of engagement and involvement that depend on stakeholder interest, understanding and time availability. Stakeholder motivations, learning styles, and program options are all part of the overall engagement process. This presentation will describe lessons learned working with community stakeholders to build awareness and involvement in stormwater management.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Importance of identifying and involving stakeholders for stormwater programs.
  2. Lessons learned to implement successful public engagement strategies.
  3. Identifying partners to assist with outreach and education.
