1 hour 30 minutes
Learn how to identify and handle the more difficult aspects of storm water permitting and SWPP development.
Many contractors and developers do not fully understand how to comply with the National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) permits for storm water discharges from construction sites. One of the main requirements of the NPDES permit is the development and implementation of a site-specific Storm Water Pollution Prevention Plan (SWPPP).
This topic helps the persons responsible for storm water compliance to understand how to apply for a storm water NPDES permit and how to develop and maintain the necessary SWPPP. This material will also help you to identify best management practices (BMPs) for your site and how to be aware of possible special conditions at your site. This topic will discuss site inspection reports, BMP failures, and how to handle regulatory inspections at your site.
