Storm Water Pollution Prevention - Materials Management
This online engineering PDH course presents EPA's stormwater best management practice for the protection of wetlands and aquatic ecosystems and conservation of water.
Municipal operations can adversely affect the water quality system due to pollutant runoff from various activities such as park and open space maintenance, fleet and building maintenance, new construction and land disturbances, and storm water system maintenance.
EPA recognizes that storm water pollution resulting from municipal activities can be prevented or reduced by implementing an effective storm water operations and maintenance program. Therefore the EPA published the Storm Water Phase II Rule on
This 2 PDH online course is applicable to municipality owners and/ or operators, construction contractors/workers, site developers, engineers, managers, and all other personnel involved in the implementation of good housekeeping practices (materials management) for municipal operations.
This PE continuing education course is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:
- Types and methods of materials management and good housekeeping
- Siting and design criteria
- Maintenance and cost considerations
- Effectiveness and limitations
In this professional engineering CEU course, you need to review EPA’s Best Management Practice relating to the “Materials Management” section of the “Pollution Prevention/Good Housekeeping for Municipal Operations” provided below. This section of the BMP addresses the following:
- Alternative Products
- Hazardous Material Storage
- Road Salt Application and Storage
- Spill Response and Prevention
- Used Oil Recycling
- Materials Management
Once you complete your course review, you need to take a multiple-choice quiz consisting of ten (10) questions to earn 2 PDH credits. The quiz will be based on this EPA publication.
Upon successful completion of the quiz, print your Certificate of Completion instantly. (Note: if you are paying by check or money order, you will be able to print it after we receive your payment.)
