Post Construction Storm Water Management - Non Structural BMP's
This online engineering PDH course addresses the implementation of non-structural best management practices for post construction storm water management.
Erosion and sedimentation related to construction site storm water runoff can significantly affect the aquatic population and hydraulic characteristics of the receiving waters. Alterations in hydraulic characteristics of streams receiving runoff include higher peak flow rates, increased frequency and duration of bankfull and subbankfull flows, increased occurrences of downstream flooding, and reduced baseflow levels.
EPA recognizes that such alterations can be prevented by implementing an effective storm water management program. Therefore the EPA published the Storm Water Phase II Rule on
This 6 PDH online course is applicable to municipality owner and/or operators, construction contractors/workers, site developers, engineers, managers, and all other personnel involved in the implementation of non-structural best management practices for post construction storm water management.
This PE continuing education course is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:
- Types and methods of non- structural bmp for storm water management
- Siting and design criteria
- Maintenance and cost considerations
- Effectiveness and limitations
In this professional engineering CEU course, you need to review EPA’s “Non-Structural BMP” section of the “Post Construction Storm Water Management in New Development and Redevelopment”. This section of the BMP addresses the following:
- Alum Injection
- On-Lot Treatment
- Buffer Zones
- Open Space Design
- Urban Forestry
- Conservation Easements
- Infrastructure Planning
- Narrower Residential Streets
- Eliminating Curbs and Gutters
- Green Parking
- Alternative Turnarounds
- Alternative Pavers
- BMP Inspection and Maintenance
- Ordinances for Post Construction Runoff
Once you complete your course review, you need to take a multiple-choice quiz consisting of thirty (30) questions to earn 6 PDH credits. The quiz will be based on this EPA publication.
