The latest BMP TRAINS 8.6 workshop was held at the Renaissance Orlando Hotel on May 21 and 22, 2018. More than 50 participants gathered, representing consulting firms from across the state as well as local, county, regional, and state permitting agencies.

Dr. Marty Wanielista, Dr. Harvey Harper, Eric Livingston, and Dr. Mike Hardin presented the methodology behind the software — approved by permitting agencies throughout the state of Florida — as well as the regulatory framework and numerous examples. A sneak peak for the upcoming BMP Trains 2020 version was given, showing some of the newest features that are now being added for the next release. BMP Trains 2020 is planned for release early next year.
