  • Stormwater Compliance Success: Using Proactive BMPs to Minimize Regulatory Discharges

    Contains 3 Component(s), Includes Credits

    In this webinar, attendees will explore cost-effective solutions to minimize or eliminate storm water discharge exceedances, as well as the risk of violations and fines.

    In this webinar, attendees will explore cost-effective solutions to minimize or eliminate storm water discharge exceedances, as well as the risk of violations and fines. Larsen will discuss how a series of small, cost-effective best management practices (BMPs) such as sediment traps, bioretention media, vegetated percolation, and infiltration trenches close to the source can minimize or eliminate regulatory discharges. 

    Three main categories of techniques are presented--infiltration, filtration and detention--as well as case studies, their violations and the preventative solutions in hindsight. Larsen will present several projects where plan review and simple measures prevented storm water discharges through containment or infiltration, saved thousands of dollars and eliminated risk. 

    As a leader, creating a clear, compelling vision of storm water compliance success is essential. Storm water management and containment practices largely have been in response to growing community awareness of the environmental effects of urbanization on water quality. Larsen will articulate how goals and responsibilities can be informed by an interest in educating and creatively leading by example to minimize and eliminate pollutant sources in our storm water discharges.

  • Construction Site Compliance in 10 Easy Steps

    Contains 4 Component(s), Includes Credits

    Construction sites are dynamic, complicated processes that are in constant change. Maintaining environmental compliance on these sites is very challenging. In addition is remains constant and is seldom something that you can “checkoff the list”.

    “Talk is cheap – but it can really make your project profitable!” 

    Construction sites are dynamic, complicated processes that are in constant change. Maintaining environmental compliance on these sites is very challenging. In addition is remains constant and is seldom something that you can “checkoff the list”. The one item that assists most during this strategy for compliance is communication. This webinar will discuss 10 simple communication strategies that, when implemented, assist your project with continuity and profit for environmental compliance. Whether you are a regulatory professional who is trying to maintain compliance within a jurisdiction or a construction professional trying to keep your project moving forward – this course is for you. Designers, you may want to pay attention because these are often the reasons your SWPPP’s are not properly implemented. Join me for an hour of action packed items that can really make a difference on your next project. Communication is by far the most underutilized BMP on every single construction project…. This webinar will provide the participant with training and skills to comply with regulations, ensure sensitive resources remain protected, and properly document activities during the construction project. In addition, this webinar will discuss how to communicate with regulatory and design professionals in order to accomplish a common goal – a compliance complete construction project. SWPPP’s are required on every construction site that disturbs one acre or more. This webinar will teach the participants how to get the SWPPP out of the office, and correctly implemented in the field.

    Learning Objectives:

    1.    Attendees will learn how to use documentations to tell your story of compliance.
    2.    Attendees will learn about proactive site management that saves you money.
    3.    Attendees will develop an understanding of communication on projects that makes the difference

  • Maintenance of Permanent Best Management Practices

    Contains 3 Component(s), Includes Credits

    As more permanent stormwater best management practices are being installed across the nation, performing ongoing maintenance has been a challenge. Permanent stormwater BMPs are now required in most urban developments across the country and it is crucial that these BMPs be maintained correctly.

    As more permanent stormwater best management practices (BMPs) are being installed across the nation, performing ongoing maintenance has been a challenge. Permanent stormwater BMPs are now required in most urban developments across the country and it is crucial that these BMPs be maintained correctly. All permanent stormwater BMPs require regular maintenance to remain operating as designed. Maintenance has been neglected in the past due to a failure to understand who is responsible for maintenance, failure to budget for maintenance, and from a lack of knowledge on appropriate maintenance practices. In this webinar, we teach participants to recognize permanent stormwater BMPs in the field, identify maintenance needs and activities, and to perform maintenance correctly. This webinar will provide attendees a broad introduction to the needs and application of permanent stormwater BMP maintenance.

    Learning Objectives:

    1)      Identify different types of permanent BMPs in the field

    2)      Identify individual components of permanent BMPs

    3)      Identify and perform maintenance needs of permanent BMPs
