Until we can end physical distancing due to COVID-19 all of our classes are being conducted as live, interactive webinars. Using GoToWebinar, we can create virtual classrooms with instructor-led training, and we can include input, questions, and feedback from each attendee. If the device you connect with does not have a microphone and speaker, you can use a dial-in phone number to speak directly with us.
The recent Supreme Court (SCOTUS) decision to require NPDES permits for indirect dischargers including ground water and surface water can impact your organization. You may not discharge pollutants to navigable water without a permit. On 4/23/2020 SCOTUS expanded the requirement for discharges through ground water or across land surface if the discharge is the “functional equivalent of a direct discharge.”
This online webinar course will help you gain an in-depth understanding of the need for a new permit shield, how to determine your risk of enforcement or a citizen suit, and the steps to minimize your exposure to litigation. The Court provided factors to determine if a permit is required for discharges through ground water and surface water discharges. The shield we present is primarily a permit application for indirect discharges, not necessarily the traditional permit shield with currently issued permits. We identify the problem and offer solutions. Examples (not inclusive): Construction drag-outs and wash-outs, Industrial ash ponds, Commercial radiator shops, Municipal retention ponds, Residential swimming pool discharges, Agricultural fertilizer run-off, POTW sludge to farms.
Testing will be conducted; students are required to achieve a minimum overall score of 75% to be awarded .7 CEUs (Continuing Education Units) from the National Stormwater Center and a five (5) year Inspector Certificate. This online course is from 10:30 am to 5 pm EST with a lunch break.
