The FSA 2022 Annual Conference is focused on Vision and Action: Working Together to Create Safe and Sustainable Watersheds. This year's event will provide an opportunity for stormwater professionals to learn how to increase the resiliency of Florida communities in response to the continuing threats to water resources.

The Florida Stormwater Association (FSA) was formed in 1993 as the Florida Association of Stormwater Utilities to serve professionals in stormwater management and finance. The name was changed in June 2001 to more accurately reflect our broad interests in stormwater management services, in addition to stormwater finance. FSA provides five basic services for its members: Training and Education; Technical Assistance and Information Sharing; and Advocacy and Legislative Relations. A 22-member Board of Directors and 4-member Executive Committee govern the Association. FSA is a 501(c)(4) non-profit corporation.
Abstracts:Title: Groundwater, Out of Sight, Out of Mind
Presenters: Matt Wissler, P.G. (Florida) and Mike Hardin, Ph.D., P.E., CFM
This presentation will focus on assessing groundwater nutrient impacts and how they impact surface waters and springsheds. Techniques used for nutrient plume delineation and groundwater flux determination along with the BMPs to help address them will be presented.
Title: Total Immersion: What's in Lee County Waterways
Presenter: Kevin Tyre
Copresenters: Rachel Brewton, Florida Atlantic University and Lisa Kreiger, Lee County
Lee County completed a large-scale microbial source tracking study in partnership with Harbor Branch Oceanographic Institute at Florida Atlantic University and FDEP to ascertain if septic systems were impacting County surface waters. This session will review the results of the study showing wide-spread evidence of wastewater contamination in varying degrees, and how to use this information to aid resource managers in making decisions for water quality projects and wastewater infrastructure in the future.
