Storm Water Pollution Prevention - Source Controls
This online engineering PDH course provides EPA's BMP for the protection of wetlands and aquatic ecosystems, conservation of water resources, and flood control.
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 5 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 (source controls) for municipal operations.
This PE continuing education course is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:
- Types and methods of pollution source controls
- 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 “Source Controls” section of the “Pollution Prevention/Good Housekeeping for Municipal Operations”. This section of the BMP addresses the following:
- Pet Waste Collection
- Automobile Maintenance
- Vehicle Washing
- Illegal Dumping Control
- Landscaping and Lawn Care
- Pest Control
- Parking Lot and Street Cleaning
- Roadway and Bridge Maintenance
- Septic System Controls
- Storm Drain System Cleaning
- Alternative Discharge Options for Chlorinated Water
Once you complete your course review, you need to take a multiple-choice quiz consisting of twenty five (25) questions to earn 5 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.) For your convenience, we will also email it to you. Please note that you can log in to your account at any time to access and print your Certificate of Completion.
