COURSE TITLE: Integrating Green Infrastructure into Local Hazard Mitigation Plans
COURSE NO: C02-082
COURSE PROVIDER: Gilbert Gedeon, P.E.
Integrating Green Infrastructure into Local Hazard Mitigation Plans
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course provides basic information on how communities can integrate green infrastructure into their Local Hazard Mitigation Plans.

 

Communities across the United States are facing a variety of challenges, from outdated infrastructure, to water quality protection, to the need to increase community resilience and mitigate the impacts of flooding and other hazards. These communities are looking for multi-purpose solutions to these challenges.

 

Green infrastructure is one approach to improve water quality and address flooding challenges. Green infrastructure yields many benefits, including improved water quality, reduced flooding, infrastructure cost savings, and healthier communities. While green infrastructure alone may not fully address these issues, however, it adds capacity, flexibility, and resilience to other infrastructure systems and provides multiple community benefits.

 

This 2 PDH online course is applicable to civil, environmental and stormwater engineers who are interested in examining how communities can integrate green infrastructure into their Local Hazard Mitigation Plans.

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

  • Familiarizing with the concept of developing a Local Hazard Mitigation Plan
  • Understanding the issues, requirements and evolution of stormwater management
  • Learning how to integrate green infrastructure into the mitigation planning process
  • Identifying important considerations for communities interested in pursuing this approach
  • Exploring the green infrastructure integration efforts in the area under study

COURSE TITLE: Introduction to NPDES Construction Site General Permit
COURSE NO: C04-003
Introduction to NPDES Construction Site General Permit
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course introduces the reader to the National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) construction general permit (CGP). The NPDES regulations apply to nearly every construction site development.  Understanding the regulations, requirements, and coverage provided under the CGP is essential to staying in compliance with the law.  Following the requirements under the CGP will also reduce the impacts of construction on the environment.

 

Construction inevitably causes some degree of disturbance and compaction of the soil, the loss of vegetation density, and the creation of impervious surfaces. Water quality can be dramatically impacted by inadequate construction site erosion and sediment control measures.  For these reasons the Environmental Protection Agency regulates even relatively small construction sites under the Phase II NPDES regulations.

 

"Any construction activity that will, or is part of a "common plan" of development or sale that will, disturb one or more acres and has the potential to have a discharge of storm water to a water of the United States must either have a permit OR have qualified for a waiver.  If all of the storm water from the construction activity is captured on-site and allowed to evaporate, soak into the ground on-site, or is used for irrigation, you do not need coverage under this permit. Under the Clean Water Act, it is illegal to have a point source discharge of pollutants to a water of the United States that is not authorized by a permit. If there is a potential for a discharge, you need to apply for coverage under this permit." (EPA Fact Sheet, 2005).

 

This 4 PDH online course is applicable to practicing engineers, contractors, developers, regulators, and all other personnel involved with construction sites.

Learning Objectives

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

  • Understanding of the general history of the NPDES regulations
  • Knowing when a permit is required
  • Determining if a project eligible for a CGP
  • Learning what coverage is provided by the permit
  • Understanding the requirements under the permit
  • Familiarizing with sources of additional information
Course Document

In this professional engineering CEU course, you need to review the EPA Fact Sheet, 2005 "NPDES General Permit for Storm Water Discharges from Construction Activities".

COURSE TITLE: Construction Site Storm Water Control (Comprehensive)
COURSE NO: C09-001
COURSE PROVIDER: Gilbert Gedeon, P.E.
Construction Site Storm Water Control (Comprehensive)
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course explains how to prevent erosion due to site stormwater runoff from affecting the aquatic life and hydraulic characteristics of water.

 

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 9 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 runoff 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 runoff control systems
  • Applicability
  • Siting and design criteria
  • Maintenance and cost considerations
