The Stormwater Webcast Series Continues....

We are happy to announce the second year of our very popular webcast series for municipal stormwater managers. Based on input from our audiences, we have selected six important topics for the coming year.

First Webcast - December 6, 2006 - Killing Two Birds with One Stone: Building a Local Program to Maintain Your Stormwater Practices and Prevent Pollution from Municipal Operations with Tom Schueler of the Center for Watershed Protection.

This webcast will discuss aspects of two of the six minimum measures: maintaining post-construction BMPs and municipal operations/good housekeeping. During this webcast we will discuss how to build a strong maintenance program that will cover both of these areas. The webcast will include a brief discussion of the requirements, examples of successful local programs, the top maintenance headaches faced by MS4s, and will introduce new tools to help you build a successful maintenance program.

Later Webcasts - Mark your calendars

January 10, 2007 - Construction 201. This webcast will build on last year’s construction webcast and include discussion of EPA’s Construction SWPPP Guide and how to conduct more effective inspections.

March 7, 2007 - Social Marketing: A Tool for More Effective Stormwater Education and Outreach Programs. Nancy Lee, nationally noted expert on communications and social marketing, will join us for a lively discussion of how social marketing techniques can be integrated into our stormwater outreach and education programs to help change citizen’s behavior to help prevent stormwater pollution.

May 9, 2007 - Municipal Stormwater Compliance. EPA will introduce its new guide for evaluating the effectiveness of MS4 programs. This guide can be used to audit or self-audit an MS4 program with the goal of assessing current program effectiveness and guiding future efforts and enhancements to meet water quality goals.

July 11, 2007 - Illicit Discharge Detection and Elimination (IDDE) 201 - Building on last year’s introduction to IDDE, Jennifer Zielinski of the Center for Watershed Protection will discuss the field and lab methods necessary to conduct IDDE investigations.

September 5, 2007 - Post-Construction 201 - Continuing our discussion from last year, this webcast will advance the discussion of important stormwater concepts including smart growth, low impact development, design standards, and the interactions of the stormwater program with local zoning and land use patterns.

Last Year’s Webcasts: All of our webcasts are archived and can be viewed at any time. They make great training tools for new staff. Also, you can now download these webcasts and listen to them on your iPod or MP4 player. To access last year’s webcasts, please visit www.epa.gov/npdes/training
