Plan to participate in and attend the ninth triennial International Conference on Urban Storm Drainage — one of the foremost international meetings where engineers, scientists and managers of urban water resources exchange ideas about the urban water environment. The ninth ICUD continues the tradition begun in 1978 in Southampton, UK, exploring state-of-the-art technology and bringing together colleagues from around the world to address critical issues in the practice of urban storm drainage. No other meeting on urban water issues attracts such a diverse group of participants. Don’t miss this opportunity to exchange ideas with colleagues and leaders in the field worldwide!

Mr.Eric W.Strecker (estrecker@geosyntec.com)
Serve as co-chairs for the 9ICUD. Members of the ASCE/EWRI Urban Water Resources Research Council and Portland and regional civil and environmental engineers will lead the conference and serve as its organizing committee, with additional assistance and guidance from the international membership of the IAHR and IWA. The 2002 conference builds on the experience of eight, highly successful past conferences on urban drainage.


The Pacific Northwest is one of the leaders in efforts to control combined sewer overflows and resolve stormwater management problems — while at the same time addressing special ecological concerns such as endangered salmon populations. As a result, the 9ICUD should receive wide regional as well as international attention. Field trips will take advantage of several large urban water resources construction and planning projects underway in the area, smaller watershed BMP-implementation projects, and a tour of on-site BMPs being employed in the Portland area. Technical tour opportunities will also be available at major dams nearby on the Columbia River.

The greater Portland metropolitan area has a population of approximately 1.6 million and is the third largest city in the Pacific Northwest. The city is situated on the Willamette River near its confluence with the Columbia River, 125 km upstream from the Pacific Ocean. Portland is also just 100 km west of beautiful 3,400-meter Mount Hood, between the Cascade Mountains to the east and the Coast Range to the west, an area boasting every imaginable urban and natural recreational amenity.

Portland’s international airport has connections to every part of the world, and public transportation within the city is excellent. The average maximum temperature in September is 24°C, with typically sunny weather. For additional information about the city, visit the Portland Oregon Visitors Association Web site at www.pova.com.

The conference will be held at the DoubleTree Hotel at Portland’s Lloyd Center. The hotel is near downtown Portland, adjacent to shopping and restaurants, and is served by light rail, city buses and airport vans.

Portland’s landscape, trendy restaurants, clothing shops, and art galleries are popping up all over this pedestrian-friendly city, making it one of the world’s most interesting destinations.

In addition, the city’s nearby ocean beaches, mountains and the high desert of the Pacific Northwest, make it an ideal setting for recreation and touring for the entire family. A selection of activities will be available both during and after the conference. Portland is also an excellent gateway for travel elsewhere in the region.
