(Mount Airy, Maryland) September 8, 2006 – BaySaver Technologies, Inc. and renowned industry expert Dr. Gary Minton, P.E. team together to offer a two-day short course, Stormwater Treatment – How It Works, November 29 and 30, 2006 in Baltimore, Maryland. Attendees will learn about the most up-to-date stormwater treatment solutions in the industry, receive valuable printed reference materials to take back to the office, and earn up to 1.4 CEU credits.

“We are honored to host Dr. Minton and offer his short course to our constituents in the mid-Atlantic area” says John Mosheim, P.E., BaySaver Technologies’ Director of Engineering. “Dr. Minton is one of the leading authorities in the stormwater treatment industry and will provide unbiased scientifically-based insight into the pros and cons of available technologies.”

The short course was designed by Dr. Minton specifically for stormwater professionals, civil and environmental engineers and consultants, public works representatives and regulators, environmental facilitators, property owners, developers and contractors who want to know more about stormwater treatment, how it works, where it is going, and how to comply with tightening regulations.

The short course is based upon Dr. Minton’s textbook, Stormwater Treatment: Biological, Chemical, and Engineering Principles, which is the leading reference describing the underlying engineering and scientific principles of stormwater treatment BMPs and their relationship to design criteria and performance. Course content will cover technical aspects relevant to wet climate regions indigenous to the mid-Atlantic region and will discuss what is known from studies regarding BMP performance. Some of the topics covered are:

• Origin of our Performance Goals; relating Goals to MEP
• A framework to make sense of the many treatment BMPs
• Latest on new treatment products, their performance
• Public BMPs are so large yet proprietary BMPs are so small
• Bigger is not necessarily better, e.g. wet ponds and wetlands
• More BMPs may not be better, caution with Treatment Trains

BaySaver Technologies and Dr. Gary Minton

• New designs for ED basins to match wet basin performance
• Making filters more cost-effective
