When airports are considering expanding or improving their stormwater facilities, conducting a benefit-cost analysis helps illuminate options and prioritize investments. TRB is hosting a webinar on Monday, March 16 from 2:00 to 3:30 PM Eastern that will highlight the steps airports can take to evaluate and promote environmentally friendly approaches to stormwater management. The presenters will discuss experiences airports have had with stormwater fees and their approach for mitigating them. They will also explore how to optimize stormwater fee credits, exemptions, fee recovery, and negotiations with utilities.

The webinar features research from the Airport Cooperative Research Program (ACRP) Research Report 208: Benefit-Cost Analyses Guidebook for Airport Stormwater and Research Report 193: Strategies for Airports to Reduce Local Stormwater Utility Fees.
