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

COURSE TITLE: Construction Site Storm Water - Erosion Control
COURSE NO: C03-001
COURSE PROVIDER: Gilbert Gedeon, P.E.
Construction Site Storm Water - Erosion Control
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course presents EPA's control measures to minimize erosion at construction sites due to higher peak flow rates, increased flooding, etc.

 

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 3 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 erosion controls 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 erosion 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 “Erosion Control” section of the “Construction Site Storm Water Runoff Control”. This section of the BMP addresses the following erosion control methods:
