Developing Your Stormwater Pollution Prevention Plan (SWPPP)
This online engineering PDH offers steps for planning how to prevent and contain stormwater pollution. It offers a step by step guide on what should be included in the plan, as well as helpful tips for how the plan can be maintained, adhered to, and exceeded in order to ensure a high level of quality.
Stormwater runoff is water from rain or snowmelt that does not immediately infiltrate into the ground and flows over or through natural or man-made storage or conveyance systems. When undeveloped areas are converted to land uses with impervious surfaces such as buildings, parking lots, and roads, the natural hydrology of the land is altered and can result in increased surface runoff rates, volumes, and pollutant loads.
This course provides useful tips about maintaining a SWPPP, as well as examples of and foresight into what can go wrong with various different kinds of materials which are commonly found at industrial sites. This includes solids, liquids, and waste. It also provides useful information on how to effectively and efficiently handle stormwater discharge in the event that control measures fail, and information on monitoring pollutants in stormwater discharge.
This 4 PDH online course is applicable to industrial, civil, environmental, and sustainability engineers as well as others interested in gaining a basic understanding about developing a stormwater pollution prevention plan.
This PE continuing education course is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:
- Understanding what causes stormwater pollution and its effects on the environment
- Learning how to prevent and contain stormwater pollution
- Learning how to develop a stormwater pollution prevention plan in order to be in compliance with a National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System permit
- Learning how to analyze the particular pollutants in your stormwater discharge
