Many activities and processes at industrial facilities are exposed to the weather (material handling and storage, equipment maintenance, etc.). Stormwater runoff that comes into contact with these activities can transport pollutants and contaminate nearby rivers, lakes, and wetlands. Federal regulations [40 CFR 122.26(b)(14)(i)-(xi)] require stormwater discharges associated with specific categories of industrial activity to be covered under National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) permits. Successful completion of this one-day course will provide foundational knowledge for staff to achieve compliance with NPDES permit conditions. Topics include: development of a Stormwater Pollution Prevention Plan (SWPPP), review of best management practices (BMPs), sampling and monitoring strategies, and understanding permit conditions.
