Training Course Descriptions
  1. Hydrology ~ 4.0 NYS PIE PDHs -- Wednesday February 1st, 2023 --
    Predicting the volume and rate of runoff from rain events is an essential skill for stormwater engineers. This class will examine in detail all of the factors that influence runoff: precipitation, soils, ground cover, drainage area and time of concentration. Using TR-55 technology, and the latest soil and precipitation data, participants will compute runoff for various pre- and post-development conditions by hand, and then by using a computer model. Determining detention storage volumes and modeling of reservoirs and outlet structures will also be addressed.

  2. Post Construction Stormwater Management Practices ~ 4.0 NYS PIE PDHs -- Wednesday February 22nd, 2023 --
    From dry detention to tree plantings, the NYS Stormwater Design Manual outlines the numerous possibilities for selecting practices to meet the permit requirements for peak flow mitigation, water quality treatment and runoff reduction. This class will review the characteristics and performance of each of these practices, and will provide an overview of the many considerations that must be made to choose the most appropriate ones for site specific needs. Practice sizing, construction and maintenance of each practice will also be covered.

  3. SWPPP Preparation and Review ~ 4.0 NYS PIE PDHs -- Wednesday March 15th, 2023 --
    Preparing, reviewing and implementing a Stormwater Pollution Prevention Plan (SWPPP) is essential to stormwater management for both the public and private sectors. The SWPPP is a key component of the Construction General Permit, the Multi Sector General Permit and of Minimum Control Measures 4, 5, and 6 of the MS4 General Permit. This class will review all of the required elements of partial and full SWPPP’s, including site planning, E & S, hydrology, good housekeeping, post construction management and maintenance. Preparation of Municipal Facility SWPPP’s, a new requirement of MM 6 of the MS4 permit, will also be covered.

  4. The New MS4 Permit ~ 4.0 NYS PIE PDHs -- Wednesday November 8th, 2023 --
    After nearly five years, the new MS4 General Permit is being finalized for a new five year term. The new permit clarifies and simplifies some elements of the existing permit while introducing new compliance challenges and obligations. Each of the six minimum measure requirements will be reviewed, emphasizing the significant modifications in the new permit pertaining to prioritizing, reporting, mapping, and municipal facility SWPPP’s. NYSDEC personnel will participate in this class and will be available for questions.

  5. The New Design Manual ~ 4.0 NYS PIE PDHs -- Wednesday November 29th, 2023 --
    This class will review the 2022 draft DEC Stormwater Design Manual, which includes new stormwater management practices (SMPs), clarifies calculations for designing SMPs, provides enhanced guidance for implementing several SMPs, updates precipitation data criteria, improves document organization, provides enhanced guidance for addressing pollutants of concern, adds green infrastructure SMPs for poor site conditions, and provides guidance on addressing climate change. DEC personnel will participate in this class and will be available for questions.
