Webinar to Explore Construction Site Inspection, Post-Construction BMPs

Register now for Storm Water Solutions, Imagine H20’s webinar

SWS, Imagine H2O host webinar on post-construction BMPs

Registration opened for the Storm Water Solutions and Imagine H2O webinar “Inspections of Construction Sites, Post-Construction BMPs & Commercial/Industrial Sites as Part of a Municipal Storm Water Program.” The event will be held 2 p.m. EST, June 6, 2017, featuring Ryan Janoch, P.E., founder of Mapistry, and Tom Ferguson, vice president of programming for Imagine H2O, as speakers.

The webinar will focus on how municipal storm water programs can more effectively inspect construction sites, post-construction BMPs and commercial/industrial sites. Technical considerations will be discussed, including identifying, reducing, and eliminating illicit discharges and identifying problematic or missing BMPs on construction and industrial sites. In addition, training programs for municipal staff will be discussed to better equip both inspectors and regular employees to identify potential storm water issues.

The webinar will look at BMPs that should be at most construction and industrial sites, which will give the viewer tips on how to best approach their next site inspection as a municipal inspector with an understanding of the site’s challenges and how to best achieve permit compliance. From an inspection perspective, this webinar will focus on identifying potential problems with post-construction BMPs and some of the recent best practices in the industry on tracking, inspecting and mapping BMPs. Webinar participants will earn one Professional Development Hour (PDH).
