KJ Consultants’ Stormwater Team Takes StormCon by Storm


Preparations are well underway for KJ’s participation at this year’s StormCon Expo, hosted at the Oregon Convention Center in Portland, Oregon August 3rd – 7th, 2014.

StormCon offers expertise from the nation’s leading engineering consultants and the unparalleled opportunity to learn from case studies presented by professionals, engineering consultants, contractors, researchers, and others on the front lines of implementing stormwater programs, BMPs, sediment and erosion control techniques, low-impact development approaches, research and testing of BMPs, and water-quality monitoring programs.

KJ has several speakers presenting on a variety of stormwater management and treatment topics. Our strong team, along with several clients, will describe solutions we have designed to the challenges that are being faced by our clients, including:

  • Interim Stormwater Management at a Historical Mill Site, Gregg Bryden. Tuesday, August 5, 2:00-2:30 pm.

Stormwater Tour

But don’t forget about the tour Sponsored by KJ Consultants, hosted by the Port of Portland, OR and Port of Vancouver USA.

Tour attendees will board buses at the Oregon Convention Center for a short ride to Terminal 6 at the Port of Portland. The visit will focus on one of the auto import and export facilities where a very successful 35-acre permeable pavement system was installed as an alternative to traditional stormwater management infrastructure. Port representatives will be available to answer questions and describe the unique facility design aspects.

Our bus tour continues across the Columbia River to the Port of Vancouver USA, which boasts numerous industry-leading programs designed to preserve and protect the region’s water quality. Examples vary in size and scope from the “Grattix,” a port-invented self-contained roof runoff treatment system, to the first of its kind 24,000 square-foot industrial stormwater biofiltration facility that provides enhanced removal of metals, oil, grease and sediment from industrial stormwater runoff. Port staff will be on hand to answer questions and detail other major projects including the soon to be completed Centennial Industrial Park biofiltration system.

Important: The Port Tour is not included with your regular conference registration and must be selected separately during the registration process. Register Now »
