Our Mission is to Advance Stormwater Management Throughout Colorado by Conducting Practical Research and Providing Education and Training Opportunities.

Founded in 2013 with support provided by the Mile High Flood District, Colorado Association of Stormwater and Floodplain Managers (CASFM), Colorado Stormwater Council (CSC) and the State of Colorado Water Quality Control Division, the Colorado Stormwater Center provides education, performs training and conducts research with the goal of maintaining and improving the health of lakes, rivers and streams through proper stormwater management.

Our Team

The Colorado Stormwater Center is housed in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Colorado State University (CSU). The Center is managed and administered by the One Water Solutions Institute. Our education and training workshops are provided by a variety of experienced professionals that work within academia, consulting, local government and private business.

Steering Committee

The Steering Committee is intended to provide ongoing strategic direction for the Center. It is intended that the Steering Committee leverage the experiences, expertise, and insight of key individuals at organizations committed to building professionalism in stormwater management.

Each committee member will serve for a 2-year term which is renewable. The Steering Committee currently consists of the following members:
