Construction Stormwater Compliance: Are You Covered Under The EPA's New 2017 Construction General Permit?
|Date / Time:
At any construction site, discharged stormwater can pick up pollutants like sediment, debris and chemicals and transport them to nearby storm sewer systems, rivers, lakes, or coastal waters, significantly impacting water quality. For this reason, the EPA, in compliance with the Clean Water Act and the National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES), issued an updated Construction General Permit (CGP) that authorized the discharge of stormwater from construction sites, under certain circumstances. That 2012 Construction General Permit (CGP) is now being replaced by the 2017 GCP.
The new 2017 CGP permit has several regulatory changes permittees must consider when working on existing or future construction or development projects in order to remain compliant.
Along with being more streamline, the 2017 CGP includes changes in types of stormwater discharges authorized as well as specifications on managing construction waste on site. The 2017 CGP also makes additional regulatory changes that all permittees must be aware of in order to stay in compliance and avoid fines.
Join us for an informative webinar led by environmental compliance specialist Jennifer Hildebrand. She’ll discuss the specifics of the 2017 CGP, how it differs from the 2012 GCP, and everything safety and compliance professionals need to know to ensure compliance for all upcoming projects.

Webcasts, audio conferences, and podcasts are presentations that you
attend via the Internet, phone, or mobile device at a specified date and time for "live" versions, or at your convenience for "recorded" and "On-Demand" versions.
versions are interactive, meaning that participants can ask questions in real time, plus are a very cost-effective form of training because 1) you receive fast, convenient learning without
any out-of-office time; 2) you can invite as many colleagues as you'd like to listen in on a single phone line; 3) you incur no travel expenses; and 4) you and your colleagues are back
at work immediately after the session ends!
And though with recorded versions you do lose the ability to ask questions, you gain the ability to hear the presentation numerous
times and to share it with others in your office.
