Stormwater runoff is a major carrier of pollutants that damage rivers, lakes, streams, and coastal waters in the United States. To address this problem, the EPA developed a program under the Clean Water Act to regulate stormwater discharge sources. This training session will help you identify the sources of pollutants in stormwater runoff and implement procedures at your facility to prevent pollutants from getting into stormwater and the environment. By the end of the training session, you will be able to identify the components of a Stormwater Pollution Prevention Plan (SWPPP), identify potential stormwater pollutant sources at your workplace implement specific Best Management Practices (BMPs) to help prevent stormwater pollution carry out any stormwater inspection responsibilities that are given to you, and prevent spills and effectively respond when they do occur.
