This seminar is designed to provide a survey of the important regulatory and technical considerations for the construction process focusing on erosion prevention, sediment control and long-term storm water runoff quality. It will benefit local government agencies, developers, consultants, engineers, scientists and other stakeholders involved in the new development in the tri-state area. This seminar will provide valuable information and innovative approaches to meet the increasing demands of storm water quality management as mandated by local, state and federal regulations in response to an increasing demand from the public. Cost-saving approaches and techniques will be discussed.
- How to address water quality and still make a profit
- A planning exercise to put material in real terms
- Learn innovative approaches that put you above the competition
- Participants will have a strong knowledge of the wide array of best management practices used in the erosion and sediment control field.
- Participants will leave the seminar with thorough understanding on how to review plans for effective erosion and sediment controls.
- Participants will be able to perform NPDES permit inspections and associated documentation.
- The attendee will be able to discuss principles and erosion prevention and sediment control.
- The attendee will be able to identify hillside stability drivers and requirements.
- The attendee will be able to review alternatives to detention.
