President at LaForge & Associates, LLC
Mr. LaForge primarily focuses on the areas of municipal services; road construction; stormwater management; flood control; hydraulics and hydrology; domestic water supply, distribution and treatment; and wastewater collection and treatment. His extensive experience includes all aspects of the above design areas, from collection of the initial raindrop through domestic use and wastewater treatment to recycling and reuse. Mr. LaForge has an extensive training background in all areas of capital improvement programs, municipal implementation programs, inspection techniques and stormwater management. His experience includes the use of geographical information systems (GIS) and modeling software to simulate the collection or distribution system of interest, and the experience to understand why the model does not match the actual system measurements. Mr. LaForge is registered as a professional engineer in Illinois and is a member of the American Public Works Association. He earned his B.S. degree in Agricultural Engineering from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.

Course Title: Urban Storm Sewer Design and Construction.
Delivery Method: Live
Course Description: This 6.5 hour live lecture presentation examines urban hydrology principles, the difference between separate and combined storm sewer systems, stormwater regulations and modeling, green stormwater infrastructure, separate storm sewer system design, and city-scale strategic stormwater planning.
Learning Objective 1:
Learners will be able to discuss the principles of urban hydrology and differentiate separate stormwater systems and combined stormwater/wastewater sewer systems.
Learning Objective 2:
Learners will be able to locate and reference local municipal stormwater regulations, and assist with stormwater modeling.
Learning Objective 3:
Learners will be able to participate in the design of a separate storm sewer system (MS4) by understanding drainage patterns, locating and spacing inlets and manholes, gutter designs, and material selection.
Learning Objective 4:
Learners will be able to describe green stormwater infrastructure practices, including parking lot designs, stormwater basins, and stormwater infiltration.
Learning Objective 5:
Learners will be able to discuss progressive flood mitigation practices as part of city-scale stormwater planning.
