Stormwater: Storm Water Pollution Prevention Plans and Best Management Practices
Robert P. Stevens, P.E., DEE
This four-hour course includes three parts. Part 1 discusses the Storm Water Pollution Prevention (SWPP) Plan requirements for industrial facilities covered under the stormwater Multi Sector General Permit (MSGP). Part 2 discusses candidate Best Management Practices (BMPs) identified as applicable for stormwater programs at industrial facilities. These BMPs are specifically required under NPDES permits for stormwater discharges, as one part of the SWPP Plan. Part 3 includes several references to more detail on the topics in this course as well as related storm water management information. This information will be useful for any manufacturing facility or construction site covered by a MSGP or state equivalent. This information will enable the student to understand the requirements of the SWPP Plan, why BMPs are necessary, and when the various BMPs are most appropriate.
