This workshop will provide training on how to effectively us the WARD S Stormwater Floodplain 3D Model for
education and outreach in your community. The 3D model is not a computer model it is a get your hands wet
interactive table top watershed in a box All that is needed to run the 3D model is your imagination and a bucket of
water. Attendees will learn how to engage audiences with interactive hands-on activities with the 3D model.
These activities will illustrate the importance of floodplains and raise awareness of the benefits of properly
managed floodplains while promoting ASFPM and the profession of floodplain management. The 3D model is easy
to use and very hands-on and offers a real opportunity to educate children and adults alike about the dangers and
impacts of unplanned development and human activity in the floodplain.
INAFSM Members: Would you use this free resource to help INAFSM conduct Flood Risk and Stormwater Quality Education in Schools? THEN, YOU must attend this workshop BEFORE YOU borrow and demonstrate the model!
- Effectively use the Stormwater Floodplain 3D model for education and outreach.
- Explore the value of floodplains in flood management.
- Demonstrate how changes in land use impact flooding.
Demonstrate through the use of the 3D model ASFPM s concept of No Adverse Impact
Help attendees gain a comfort level with the activities associated with the curriculum for the 3D model.
- Introduce and demonstrate the concept of low impact development and best Stormwater management practices and
their role in floodplain management.
- Introduce and demonstrate the concept of Runoff Footprint
Introduce and demonstrate the concept of a watershed approach to floodplain management.
Contrast and compare hydrographs created using the 3D model.
Introduce the flood safety concept of "Turn Around Don't Drown"

Mark Walton currently serves as the Michigan Stormwater Floodplain Association s Executive Director, is a member
of the Association of State Floodplain Managers, and a Certified Floodplain Manager (CFM). He is one of the
principle scientists/developers of the Stormwater Floodplain Simulation System. He received his B.S. in Watershed
Management at the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point in 1980, and his M.S. in Natural Resources/Remote
Sensing at the University of Michigan in 1983.
Did you know that INAFSM won a national contest to receive this model?!
Educational Campaign Goals:
Show the model in school systems with priority focus on inner-city schools
Special emphasis will be on schools located in floodplains and/or in areas that have experienced recent flooding and/or water quality impairments
Help children who have been through a flood and/or water impairment understand it from an engineering and scientific standpoint in order to process the trauma and give them a sense of control over their world.
Raise awareness of the benefits of properly managed water resources and promote the profession of floodplain and stormwater management to students through hands on demonstrations and lessons.
Assist with INAFSM s objective to provide floodplain and stormwater education to a diverse, urban audience
Free, registration is required.
