COURSE TITLE: Storm Water Pollution Prevention - Source Controls
COURSE NO: C05-003
COURSE PROVIDER: Gilbert Gedeon, P.E.
Storm Water Pollution Prevention - Source Controls
Course Highlights

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 December 8, 1999, that describes a menu of Best Management Practices (BMP). “Pollution Prevention/Good Housekeeping for Municipal Operations” is one of the Best Management Practices that requires operators of small MS4s in urbanized areas to implement a storm water management program for the protection of wetlands and aquatic ecosystems, improved quality of receiving water bodies, conservation of water resources, flood control, and protection of public health.

 

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.

Learning Objectives

This PE continuing education course is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:

  • Types and methods of pollution source controls
  • Applicability
  • Siting and design criteria
  • Maintenance and cost considerations
  • Effectiveness and limitations
Course Document

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:

COURSE TITLE: Construction Site Storm Water - Sediment Control
COURSE NO: C02-002
COURSE PROVIDER: Gilbert Gedeon, P.E.
Construction Site Storm Water - Sediment Control
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course addresses EPA's BMP for improved quality of receiving water bodies, conservation of water resources, flood control and more.

 

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 December 8, 1999, that describes a menu of Best Management Practices (BMP). “Construction Site Storm Water Runoff Control” is one of the Best Management Practices that requires operators of small MS4s in urbanized areas to implement a storm water management program for the protection of wetlands and aquatic ecosystems, improved quality of receiving water bodies, conservation of water resources, flood control, and protection of public health.

 

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 sediment control for storm water runoff from construction sites.

Learning Objectives

This PE continuing education course is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:

  • Types and methods of sediment control systems
  • Applicability
  • Siting and design criteria
  • Maintenance and cost considerations
  • Effectiveness and limitations
Course Document

In this professional engineering CEU course, you need to review EPA’s Best Management Practice relating to the “Sediment Control” section of the “Construction Site Storm Water Runoff Control”. This section of the BMP addresses the following “Sediment Control” methods:

  • Temporary Diversion Dikes
  • Wind Fences and Sand Fences
  • Brush Barrier
  • Silt Fence
  • Sediment Filters and Sediment Chambers
  • Sediment Trap
  • Strom Drain Inlet Protection

Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course presents the laws and rules of ethics and professional responsibility governing the practice of engineering in the State of Nebraska. Title 110, Chapter 5, “Code of Practice”, of the Nebraska Rules and Regulations of the Rules, which relate to the laws and rules of profession conduct are presented in this course.

 

Engineering ethics is (1) the study of moral issues and decisions confronting individuals and organizations involved in engineering and (2) the study of related questions about moral conduct, character, ideals and relationships of peoples and organizations involved in technological development (Martin and Schinzinger, Ethics in Engineering).

 

Since engineers are faced with frequent moral and ethical dilemmas while practicing their engineering profession, this course will provide you with moral and ethical guidance in your decision making process. Most importantly, it will provide you with insight on how to conduct, respect and protect your engineering practice with the utmost professionalism.

 

This 1 PDH online course is applicable to Professional Engineers licensed in the State of Nebraska and who are required to demonstrate continuing professional competency in engineering ethics as a condition of their license renewal. For each renewal period, every licensee must complete thirty (30) professional development hours, at least one (1) of which must be relative to the principals of professional responsibility, conduct and ethics.
