Session Description

Many MS4s across the country are facing the daunting tasks of conducting maintenance on publicly owned properties and facilities while simultaneously ensuring that stormwater practices on private property are properly maintained. This webcast will feature practical guidance on how to:

  • Build more effective maintenance programs for the MS4 and stormwater BMPs in order to address NPDES permit requirements
  • Identify which municipal maintenance operations should be targeted for stormwater pollution prevention efforts

The webcast will start with an overview of maintenance requirements, why maintenance is essential for water quality, and top maintenance headaches faced by MS4s. Detail will then be provided on how to build an effective local maintenance programs, including scoping your program; conducting a municipal operations analysis; training municipal employees; reducing future maintenance burden through better design; tracking maintenance needs and activities; and approaches to ensure maintenance occurs.
