- Role of the MS4 Inspector and inspection protocol (IDDE & Facility Inspections)
- MS4 program audits.
Following course completion, recertified MS4CECI students will be able to research the latest changes in the federal and state requirements for stormwater; explain the requirements of the NPDES permitting program & in some cases local stormwater management ordinances, describe the responsibilities of personnel involved (permits, SWPPP design professionals, state & federal agencies) in the stormwater management activities.
