Registration Eligibility
Start Date
End Date
This course is the sixth of an eight course series on Green Infrastructure that provides a template for design and implementation of Green Building concepts as they apply to cities and municipalities.

This 3-hour interactive online course gives you the information and action items to assess sites and identify opportunities to use Best Management Practices (BMPs) in “Green” planning, design and construction. You'll get:

Integrated stormwater management planning
Water pollution prevention
Construction runoff prevention
Surface pretreatments for filtering runoff
Catch basin inserts and water quality inlets
Detention and Infiltration structures
Constructed wetlands
Distance Learning
Course Equivalency
Water / Stormwater Management
Health, Safety and Welfare
Learning Outcomes
At the conclusion of this course, you will be able to:

List Green Building Best Practices as they apply to Stormwater Management
Discuss a proactive, integrated planning approach to urban stormwater management
Define watershed-based drainage master plans and associated policies
Explain pollution prevention and source control strategies to minimize damage to water sources and aquatic ecosystems
Label water quality inlets to treat the highly polluted water quality volume of the design storm
Explain surface pretreatment BMPs to remove sediments, salts, pollution, and debris
Describe underground detention structures to temporarily attenuate and store runoff during peak flow periods
Label surface and underground infiltration structures within or adjacent to the right-of-way to reduce stormwater runoff volumes and peak flows, improve water quality, and promote groundwater recharge
Discuss constructed wetlands – permanent pools of water that are populated by wetland plants and aquatic organisms – to reduce, detain and treat stormwater runoff
Use the material to develop your own checklists to improve existing policies and procedure
