Introduction to Stormwater Permitting


Categories: ,


Stormwater is a leading source of water pollution and consequently, EPA has set effluent standards under the national pollution discharge elimination system (NPDES).  Stormwater discharges from solid waste facilities must be permitted because their operations are subject to the discharge requirements for industrial facilities.  They must also comply with construction site requirements during facility development.

Upon completion of this course, the attendee will be able to:

  • Define the NPDES regulatory requirements for industrial and construction activities
  • Discuss development of a Stormwater Pollution Prevention Plan (SWPPP) for various types of facilities and the specifics of what should be included in those plans
  • Demonstrate a number of best management practices (BMPs) that can help minimize pollutant release from solid waste operations
