Post Construction Storm Water Management - Structural BMPs
This online engineering PDH interactive presentation presents a combination of structural best management practices appropriate to address storm water runoff from new development and redevelopment projects disturbing land characteristics.
EPA recommends that you ensure the appropriate implementation of the structural Best Management Practices, in order to provide new development and potentially redevelopment with more opportunities for water quality protection, by considering some or all of the following: preconstruction review of BMP designs; inspections during construction to verify BMPs are built as designed; post-construction inspection and maintenance of BMPs; and penalty provisions for the noncompliance with design, construction or operation and maintenance.
Structural BMPs include: storage practices such as wet ponds and extended-detention outlet structures; filtration practices such as grassed swales, sand filters and filter strips; and infiltration practices such as infiltration basins and infiltration trenches.
This 3 PDH online interactive presentation is intended primarily to all personnel responsible for the implementation of best management practices for post construction storm water management including but not limited to, municipality owners and/or operators, construction contractors and their staff, site developers and investors, and engineers.
This PE continuing education interactive presentation is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:
- Familiarizing with the basic structure ponds
- Learning about the different infiltration practices
- Learning about the various filtration practices
- Gaining an overview of vegetative practices
- Understanding what are runoff pretreatment practices
