It’s time for comment on the NPDES Municipal Stormwater Permit. Join me for a FREE 30-45 minute lunchtime discussion where I’m offering my thoughts on the update as a former technical lead, reviewer and consulting engineer.
Stormwater management and WWHM design come together in this comprehensive training. Learn how to take your project from concept to design to model with Dan Gariepy P.E., former Chair of the Stormwater Technical Team for Washington State Department of Ecology. Learn from the modeling expert who helped shape the municipal NPDES stormwater permit for Western Washington and the Stormwater Management Manual for Western Washington. (2012, 2019)
This 2-day (4 hours each day) class is offered on
Tuesday, January 16th and Wednesday, January 17th
Dan guides you through the software and takes a sample project from beginning to end. Included in the course is a 1 hour group follow up session to address questions on your own project or on an example we provide for you to try.
Learn the Stormwater Management Manual for Western Washington from, Dan Gariepy P.E., one of its authors and technical advisers. Gain an in depth understanding of the leading manual for stormwater design in Western Washington. This guide through the Manual will allow you to gain insights into how stormwater design can be used to support your project from concept to design. The fundamental concepts of Stormwater including Flow Control, Water Quality Treatment, Low Impact Development will be explored in a way to ensure that you are given the optimum understanding on how to build successful projects from a design, review and implementation perspective.
Thursday, February 1st and Friday, February 2nd
This course takes you through the Minimum Requirements and how to comply with the NPDES permit for new and redevelopment projects. This is a must for getting started in the Western Washington Stormwater. Others with more experience may also find it helpful to cover the breadth of what the SWMMWW uses to support the Municipal Permit.
Thursday, March 28th and Friday, March 29th
This course will focus on how to design stormwater BMPs/Facilities using the SWMMWW. There’s a lot of nuance that may take time to master, but this guide will take you through the essentials and help you find the details easier. Being interactive also helps to get clear on the text from someone who has used it hundreds of times (and written parts of it).
In this course Dan Gariepy P.E., will teach contractors and inspectors how to manage erosion and sediment at construction sites. The course provides an overview of the information needed to comply with federal, state and local regulations on construction stormwater. The theory will include an overview of the methods and Best Management Practices (BMPs) to implement for a construction site that will minimize the impact of stormwater runoff.
Volume 2/CESCL Certification. We’re working on getting our course materials approved for CESCL Certification by Washington State Department of Ecology and will be scheduling classes later in 2024.
