This course was introduced in 2017 to provoke “outside-of-the-box thinking” and is back by popular demand! Our panel of experts will examine many unconventional and some entirely new approaches to managing stormwater! While Florida was a pioneer in the regulation of stormwater – dating back to the establishment of the MSSW program in 1972 – are we too focused on regulation today and missing an opportunity to once again be a pioneer? If we started over today with a blank sheet of paper, how should we address stormwater management?  How would we better target and fund it? How do we incentivize harvesting stormwater for water supply? How would “stormwater credit trading”, stormwater “co-ops”, or a “cap and trade” system work? Might we do better in springsheds? This panel will examine a number of “mission-driven”, rather than “regulatory-driven”, alternatives to our current system of stormwater management, and the audience should come prepared to participate in what is sure to be a lively and thought-provoking discussion!
