COURSE TITLE: Developing Your Stormwater Pollution Prevention Plan (SWPPP)
COURSE NO: C04-057
COURSE PROVIDER: Gilbert Gedeon, P.E.
Developing Your Stormwater Pollution Prevention Plan (SWPPP)
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH offers steps for planning how to prevent and contain stormwater pollution. It offers a step by step guide on what should be included in the plan, as well as helpful tips for how the plan can be maintained, adhered to, and exceeded in order to ensure a high level of quality.

 

Stormwater runoff is water from rain or snowmelt that does not immediately infiltrate into the ground and flows over or through natural or man-made storage or conveyance systems. When undeveloped areas are converted to land uses with impervious surfaces such as buildings, parking lots, and roads, the natural hydrology of the land is altered and can result in increased surface runoff rates, volumes, and pollutant loads.

 

This course provides useful tips about maintaining a SWPPP, as well as examples of and foresight into what can go wrong with various different kinds of materials which are commonly found at industrial sites. This includes solids, liquids, and waste. It also provides useful information on how to effectively and efficiently handle stormwater discharge in the event that control measures fail, and information on monitoring pollutants in stormwater discharge.

 

This 4 PDH online course is applicable to industrial, civil, environmental, and sustainability engineers as well as others interested in gaining a basic understanding about developing a stormwater pollution prevention plan.
Learning Objectives

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

  • Understanding what causes stormwater pollution and its effects on the environment

COURSE TITLE: Post Construction Storm Water Management - Non Structural BMP's
COURSE NO: C06-001
COURSE PROVIDER: Gilbert Gedeon, P.E.
Post Construction Storm Water Management - Non Structural BMP's
Course Highlights

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 December 8, 1999, that describes a menu of Best Management Practices (BMP). “Post Construction Storm Water Management in New Development and Redevelopment” 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 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.
