The good housekeeping and pollution prevention guidance prepared by EPA is comprehensive yet sometimes difficult to apply at the local level.  Most of the recommended activities or BMPs are non-structural and so difficult to ensure they are being implemented.  In addition, the structural controls that may be needed at some facilities can be very expensive and difficult to fund.  This presentation will delve into the permit requirements and highlight practical implementation strategies for non-structural and structural BMPs.  Case studies will be presented for large and small MS4s.


Learning Objectives: 

1. Understand the EPA permit requirements.

2. Learn how to prioritize compliance efforts.

3. Learn how strategies used by other MS4s can be easily adapted to your MS4.

Course Level: All
