The largest threat to water quality nationwide is stormwater, which carries nonpoint source pollution into streams, lakes, wetlands, and coastal harbors. The Center for Stormwater Technology Evaluation Verification (CSTEV) at the University of New Hampshire is a groundbreaking program that provides rigorous scientific field testing and demonstration of stormwater treatment technologies.
PSU’s Center for the Environment presents Rob Roseen, Director of the UNH Stormwater Center, Tuesday, March 27 at 3:30 p.m. in Boyd Science Center, Room 144, for a talk about the CSTEV facility and the effectiveness of various stormwater treatment methods.
Roseen has broad experience in water resources including hydrology and hydraulics evaluations, restoration and enhancement alternatives, dam removal assessment, groundwater investigations, nutrient and TMDL studies, and remote sensing and GIS applications. He has been working for over five years in New Hampshire’s Great Bay in groundwater-related projects. Research efforts include; characterization of groundwater discharge to Hampton Harbor, development of GIS application extension for use in delineating groundwater discharge zones and groundwater mapping. He has lectured on hydrologic monitoring techniques, sediment transport and sampling, velocity profiling, stream restoration, dam removal, river mechanics, open channel flow, fluid mechanics, and environmental systems analysis.
