The district will be offering four classes as part of the 2020 Stormwater Management Training Series

Here is a look at the classes being offered and when:

5/6 Illicit Discharge, Pollution Prevention Programs & the New MS4 Permit

Two critical obligations required by the NYSDEC SPDES General Permit for Municipal Separate Storm Sewer System (MS4) operators are to prevent illicit stormwater discharges (MCM 3 – Illicit Discharge Detection and Elimination; IDDE), and to prevent pollution from municipal facilities and operations (MCM 6 –Pollution Prevention and Good Housekeeping). This class will focus on the fundamental requirements of both MCMs, including proven strategies for compliance, mapping strategies, as well as highlighting some of the more advanced strategies to help meet future permit requirements. This class, co-instructed with Andy Sansone of Monroe County, will review the elements of successful municipal IDDE and Pollution Prevention programs, with case studies, mapping tools and class exercises. DEC personnel from Central Office will also be present to provide a brief update and summary of the pending updates to the MS4 general permit.

All courses will be held at:

Monroe Community College (Brighton Campus)
1000 East Henrietta Road
Rochester, NY 14623
Class Room 209 (Empire Room) or Room 130 (Forum Room) in Building 3.

Workshop fees:

$230 per session
$100 per session for Monroe County Stormwater Coalition Members
There is a 10% discount for those who attend all four sessions
