Learn how to design and implement a stormwater management plan at your facility. Join Jon Arnold, as he discusses the need for a stormwater management plan and what you need to know before finalizing your plan. Join us LIVE on April 16, 2015 at 2:00 pm ET. Learn More >>>
This webinar will discuss the need for stormwater management plans and how to do the initial elements of the plan. We will touch on usual stormwater management rules and where to get details that may affect your facility. We will then show how to map the facility campus and determine the watershed and basins within the property boundaries. Finally, we will give ideas on what types of stormwater control devices to use given the nature of the facility. This webinar is a 1 hour lecture and 30 minutes of Q&A.
Mr. Arnold has extensive regulatory, research, and teaching experience in water resources. He was involved in the very earliest stormwater sampling and characterization, and has since performed research in stormwater runoff and nonpoint source pollution. He wrote a statewide manual on stormwater management for regulators, consulting engineers, and municipal and commercial users as stormwater management utilities were being established.
Daylight Saving Time (United States) 2015 begins at 2:00 AM on Sunday, March 8th. If you are currently attending one of our online review courses or plan to attend the ASP Blueprint Webinar on March 11th, please verify the CURRENT TIME in the right sidebar of the Bowen EHS® Member Center starting March 8th.
