What type of STORMWATER TRAINING have you done?
Types of Illicit Discharges Sewage spills Car wash wastewater Improper disposal of oil Radiator flushing Laundry wastewater Spills from roadway accidents Home repairs Carpet cleaners Construction
Automotive Service and Food Service Facilities Educational Site Inspection Program Explain applicable regulations Distribute & discuss BMPs and educational materials Conduct a site walk- through to inspect for evidence of illicit discharges and educational programs for employees
Enforcement – What is a violation? Illicit discharges Nuisance Contamination Violation of receiving water limitations Violation of order, permit or SWPCP Violation of Municipal NPDES permit
The Big Three Basic Messages Only rain down the streets & storm drains. The storm drain system is different and separate from the sanitary sewer system. Conserve water.
Cover and berm or move materials, processes, and equipment out of contact with rainfall or runoff Prepare and comply with a Spill Prevention and Control Plan Pretreat contaminated runoff for disposal to sanitary sewer system Catch and treat contaminated runoff with a stormwater treatment system prior to discharge to storm drain Best Management Practices

Stormwater Training? P3S Mission Statement: “…..The Committee was created to promote professional and technical excellence in the field of water pollution source control, including pretreatment, pollution prevention, and stormwater, through education and training”
What Types of Stormwater Training should P3S do ? Well who is your audience ?
Let’s Put Our Heads Together Is there different audiences? Phase I Phase II Inspectors Engineers Construction Industry/Commercial
Here is a thought ! Who pays our salaries? Who is our end user? Answer: The Citizens So lets educate our people in ways that benefit the public.
Marketing Get the right audience for the right conference! (I.E. Don’t do a Planning and Land Development theme for your Annual Conference )
Training Topics 1. Treatment BMPs: Phase II-What are they? Phase I-Proper installation and maintenance 2. Stormwater Regulations: Phase II- What are my requirements now? Phase I- What future regs are going to affect my program?
Some Training Topics: - TMDLs…Long-term effect, -How to Perform Stormwater Inspections, -Enforcement Response for Residential and Industrial Facilities, -Mobile Contractor Issues, -BMP Inspection for Construction Sites, -Stormwater Training for Municipalities, -Stormwater Training for Operators, -How to develop an SW Ordinance, -Others?
So think about… 1.What is your SW Training Purpose? 2.Who is your audience? 3.How to Market? 4.What appropriate and pertinent training topics are required for the targeted audience? 5. When and how are you going to hold this event?
