Construction Pollution Webinars

Are you looking to improve your knowledge of managing stormwater on a construction site? You’re invited to a series of FREE webinars that will provide guidance in preventing pollutant discharge during construction.

Hosted by stormwater professionals employed with municipalities around the State of Washington, these webinars will focus on tips for designing detailed erosion and sediment control (ESC) plans and stormwater pollution prevention plans (SWPPPs). Hear the stories, good and bad, from the perspective of those that review and approve development permits. Learn how knowledge should be transferred from the designer to the contractor.

Free Webinars for Contractors

Contractors are tasked with addressing many stormwater requirements. Learn strategies and compliance tips to comply with Washington state and local stormwater requirements. These two webinars will help you to keep your construction sites in compliance. Learn about ways to protect the environment, see examples of what not to do, and learn planning strategies to save time and money. Help reduce harm to our waterways, habitat, and wildlife and comply with the requirements of the Clean Water Act on your site.

Free Webinars for Designers

Stormwater runoff from construction sites can cause significant harm to our waterways, habitat, and wildlife. That’s why construction professionals are required to submit a Stormwater Pollution Prevention Plan (SWPPP) that describes how you will prevent contamination, control erosion, and comply with the requirements of the Clean Water Act.

Does your design account for pollution prevention on construction sites? It should, and this webinar helps designers improve their SWPPPs and erosion control plans to ensure your project controls pollution and remains in compliance with state requirements. 

You’ll get a taste of what reviewers want to see on your project’s SWPPP and erosion control plan to earn approval. Detailing temporary water quality, flow control, and the sizing and selection of best management practices (BMPs) will be the bode of confidence for your reviewers. This webinar will go over the broad techniques in finding and applying the details your project will need, coupled with a few examples.
