Training Course Descriptions
  1. Post Construction Stormwater Management Practices ~ 4.0 NYS PIE PDHs -- Wednesday April 7th, 2021 --
    From dry detention to tree plantings, the NYS Stormwater Design Manual outlines the numerous possibilities for selecting practices to meet the permit requirements for peak flow mitigation, water quality treatment and runoff reduction. This class will review the characteristics and performance of each of these practices, and will provide an overview of the many considerations that must be made to choose the most appropriate ones for site specific needs. Practice sizing, construction and maintenance of each practice will also be covered.

  2. Stormwater Filtration and Infiltration Practices ~ 4.0 NYS PIE PDHs -- Wednesday April 28th, 2021 --
    Filtration and infiltration are effective mechanisms for stormwater pollutant removal, and are present in many stormwater management practices employed for water quality treatment and runoff reduction. This class will examine the essential aspects and design standard of stormwater practices that use filtration and infiltration, including initial design considerations, evaluation of options, testing, sizing, construction, and most importantly: long term maintenance.

  3. Stormwater Ponds and Wetlands ~ 4.0 NYS PIE PDHs -- Wednesday May 19th, 2021 --
    Stormwater ponds and wetlands have proven to be one of the most popular group of stormwater management practices employed by designers. And with good reason; they provide both water quality and quantity treatment, while also creating diverse natural ecosystems. This class will examine the various components of stormwater pond and wetland systems, and will review the numerous design elements, sizing criteria, and maintenance requirements needed for their proper operation.

  4. Erosion and Sedimentation Control Practices ~ 4.0 NYS PIE PDHs -- Wednesday June 9th, 2021 --
    An Erosion and Sedimentation Control Plan is a required element of all construction projects needing stormwater permit coverage in NY. Following the guidance provided in NY’s 2016 “Blue Book”, this class will review the various techniques for planning, runoff management, soil stabilization, and sedimentation control that serve to minimize erosion, sediment transport and sediment deposition from exposed soils. Proper site-specific practice selection, design, placement, construction and maintenance of these E & S practices will also be covered.

  5. SWPPP Preparation and Review ~ 4.0 NYS PIE PDHs -- Wednesday June 30th, 2021 --
    Preparing, reviewing and implementing a Stormwater Pollution Prevention Plan (SWPPP) is essential to stormwater management for both the public and private sectors. The SWPPP is a key component of the Construction General Permit and of Minimum Control Measures 4, 5, and 6 of the MS4 General Stormwater Permit. This class will review all of the required elements of partial and full SWPPP’s, including site planning, E & S, hydrology, good housekeeping, post construction management and maintenance. Preparation and review checklists will be provided and examined.
