COURSE TITLE: Illicit Discharge Detection and Elimination
COURSE NO: C05-002
COURSE PROVIDER: Gilbert Gedeon, P.E.
Illicit Discharge Detection and Elimination
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course presents EPA's BMP for identifying and eliminating non-stormwater discharges to storm sewers to improve runoff stormwater quality.

 

Non-storm water discharges are typically the result of unauthorized connections of sanitary or process wastewater drains to storm sewers. These connections are common, yet often go undetected. Non-storm water discharges can include discharges of process water, air conditioner condensate, non-contact cooling water, vehicle wash water, or sanitary waste.

 

EPA recognizes that these discharges are significant sources of pollutants, and unless regulated by an NPDES permit, they are also illegal. Therefore the EPA published the Storm Water Phase II Rule on December 8, 1999, that describes a menu of Best Management Practices (BMP). “Illicit Discharge Detection and Elimination” is one of the Best Management Practices that requires operators of small MS4s in urbanized areas to identify and eliminate non-storm water discharges to storm sewers in order to improve runoff water quality.

 

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 detection and elimination of illicit discharges.

Learning Objectives

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

  • Types and methods of illicit discharges
  • Applicability
  • Siting and design criteria
  • Maintenance and cost considerations

COURSE TITLE: Post Construction Storm Water Management - Structural BMP's
COURSE NO: C10-001
COURSE PROVIDER: Gilbert Gedeon, P.E.
Post Construction Storm Water Management - Structural BMP's
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course describes EPA's stormwater BMP for protecting streams receiving runoff from alterations in hydraulic and aquatic characteristics.

 

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 10 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 structural best management practices for post construction storm water management.

Learning Objectives

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

  • Types and methods of structural bmp for storm water management
  • 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 “Structural BMP” section of the “Post Construction Storm Water Management in New Development and Redevelopment”. This section of the BMP addresses the following:

COURSE TITLE: Storm Water Pollution Prevention - Materials Management
COURSE NO: C02-005
COURSE PROVIDER: Gilbert Gedeon, P.E.
Storm Water Pollution Prevention - Materials Management
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course presents EPA's stormwater best management practice for the protection of wetlands and aquatic ecosystems and conservation of water.

 

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 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 good housekeeping practices (materials management) 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 materials management and good housekeeping
