Training Course Descriptions
  1. SWPPP Preparation and Review ~ 7.0 NYS PIE PDHs -- Wed Jan 23, 2019 --
    Preparing, reviewing and implementing a Stormwater Pollution Prevention Plan (SWPPP) is essential to construction stormwater planning, compliance with Minimum Control Measures 4, 5, and 6 of the MS4 General Stormwater Permit, and with the Multi-Sector General Permit (MSGP). This class will review all of the required elements of partial and full SWPPP’s, including site planning, E & SC, hydrology, good housekeeping, post construction management and maintenance. Preparation and review checklists and class examples of residential, commercial, MS4, and MSGP SWPPP’s will be provided. Representatives from NYSDEC Central Office will participate in the class, providing an opportunity for participants to interact directly with the regulatory agency on issues relating to the Construction Permit and the NYS Stormwater Management Design Manual.

  2. Wet Pond Design ~ 7.0 NYS PIE PDHs -- Wed Feb 20, 2019 --
    Stormwater Ponds have proven to be one of the most popular stormwater management practices employed by designers with good reason: ponds are one of the few practices that provide both water quality and quantity treatment. This class will examine the various components of a wet pond system, and review the numerous design elements needed to for the proper operation of ponds. Working with a specific pond site, we will begin by establishing the tributary drainage areas and associated hydrology. We will then determine the various pond storage volumes and complete the design of an outlet structure to manage the flows. The pond design will follow the uniform sizing criteria in the NYS Stormwater Management Design Manual. Hydrology will be computed using TR-55 methods. Maintenance requirements for ponds will also be discussed.

  3. Floodplains and Watershed Hydraulics ~ 7.0 NYS PIE PDHs -- Wed Mar 20, 2019 --
    As climate change continues to influence flooding conditions, it is important to be able to adequately model and predict flood plains and floodways. The HEC-RAS computer program is a powerful tool developed by the USACE to model river, stream and reservoir hydraulics, and is used by FEMA to create the community Flood Insurance Rate Maps (FIRM’s). This workshop will provide a hands-on introduction to using the HEC-RAS modeling techniques to generate hydraulic profiles and to analyze and map flood plains and floodways using actual site conditions.
    Specific discussion and exercise topics will include:
    • Floodplain and hydraulics terminology
    • Intro to the HEC-RAS model
    • HEC-RAS input and output data
    • Generation of a hydraulic profile of a simple stream
    • Modeling bridges and culverts
    • Establishing floodplains and floodways

  4. Stormwater and the Multi-Sector Permit ~ 7.0 NYS PIE PDHs -- Thur Apr 18, 2019 --
    NYSDEC’s Multi-Sector General Permit (MSGP) for Stormwater Discharges Associated with Industrial Activities has recently been updated. The first time offering of this course will cover all the basic requirements and regulations of the current MSGP, and highlight the where changes were made to the previous version of the permit. The class, which will be co-presented with NYSDEC and Andy Sansone of Monroe County, will review the specific MSGP sectors, SWPPP preparation, and BMP’s. The preparation of the necessary forms to obtain and support MSGP permit coverage (NOI, ACR , and others) will be presented, and the relationship between the MSGP and the MS4 permit will be explained. Specific sector, site, and BMP design examples and problems will be provided. <
