ASTM will host an October 1 virtual meeting to potentially seed a technical committee tasked with developing standards for stormwater control measures. Standards could support efforts to reduce pollution from runoff; create uniform testing, verification, and certification programs; and, unify varied stakeholders.
Meeting organizers aim to identify specific standards needs, determine if ASTM should formally pursue the activity, and develop a new technical committee title, scope and structure. Manufacturers, users, trade associations, professional societies, government agencies, consumer groups, academia, engineers, and testers are driving the effort. They are interested in creating standards in areas such as laboratory performance methods, field monitoring practices, plus installation and maintenance guides. The no-fee meeting will take place at 9 a.m. EDT. Companies and individuals interested in participating and charting a path to technical standards for stormwater control measures can register with ASTM Technical Committee Operations Manager Frank McConnell, [email protected].
