AudioSolutionz, a division of audio conference and corporate education leader ProEdTech, will host the live webinar “Storm Water Management: Putting the New Construction General Permit to Work for You” with industry veteran Tamar J. Cerafici on Thursday, September 21, 2017 at 11:30 am ET. This virtual boot camp will address the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) revisions to its Construction General Permit (CGP) and how they will influence construction projects dealing with storm water management.
Every five years, the EPA revises its CGP, the permit that authorizes construction operators to discharge pollutants under the Clean Water Act’s limitations. The newest version, which was effective in February 2017, adds some new provisions that have changed the federal regulatory landscape for construction projects. In addition, state and local regulators may require additional preventive measures.
Construction companies must understand what these changes will mean for their projects, as more resources, time and effort are likely needed to comply with storm water management obligations. New regulations also mean enforcement action risks from permitting agencies and the potential for debilitating enforcement issues and hefty fines.
Join experienced environmental lawyer Tamar Cerafici for this fast-paced boot camp, where construction companies will gain practical, hands-on training for the new CGP and Storm Water Pollution Prevention Plan (SWPPP). This webinar will provide the tools needed to train construction employees, negotiate with regulators, and improve construction companies’ bottom lines.
The session will help construction site supervisors, environmental specialists, CFOs, facility managers, estimators, hydrogeologists, project managers, and engineers:
Understand the elements and significant changes in the new CGP, effective February 2017
- Identify weaknesses in a construction company’s SWPPP
- Recognize post-construction and MS4 issues in storm water management and green infrastructure
- Comply with polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs)…
