of rainwater and meltwater,,

which will take place on

This conference is a continuation of the very successful first edition of “Stormwater Poland 2017”. The basic advantage of the conference series is a practical look at rainwater. The discussion will not concern problems of rainwater management in Poland, but it will Focus on the presentation of specific ways of solving them and presenting the benefits resulting from rational management of rainwater and meltwater.


Conference topics

Experiences from last year show that we can still learn a lot from others. Therefore, the proposed sessions and discussion panels will again be addressed by authorities and practitioners in the field of rainwater from Poland and abroad. We strive to make their speeches inspiring and provoking in order to create interesting discussion without which progress would not be possible. We are convinced that the keynote speakers we have invited will contribute especially to the animation of sessions devoted to: innovative rainwater technologies, costs of climate change, rainwater in spatial planning, urban ecohydrology and management of overloaded drainage systems..


Traditionally, at our conference, there will be a dedicated rainwater retention session. We are obliged to do so not only by the name of our portal, but above all a real incentive to develop retention, enshrined in the new Water Law Act.


Having constant contact with the practice of operations related to rainwater in the country, we are observing with concern the clearly emerging generation gap in the group of specialists in this field. Using the presence of university staff during the conference, we will lobby for filling the gap as soon as possible and transferring the knowledge of experienced specialists to young engineers.


During this year’s edition of Stormwater Poland, we do not limit ourselves only to technical aspects and solutions concerning urban areas only. We are planning separate sessions dedicated to communication drainage and consulting in rainwater. In the consulting session, we assume focusing on organizational, economic and legal issues important for the water management.


At the end of the presentation of planned sessions and discussion panels, we would like to draw particular attention to the related thematic blocks: the role of the Polish waters in the management of rainwater and meltwater and the standards for maintenance and operation of rainwater drainage systems. Returning to the roots of our conference, which is practical look at rainwater, we understand the need signaled by many people, to learn about the functioning of a new entity as soon as possible, such as Polish Waters and the formulation and implementation of rainwater drainage system standards, meeting the requirements of the new Water Law.
