New and updated construction storm water video series now available
October 14, 2021
A new EGLE training video series on construction storm water and soil erosion and sedimentation control (SESC) has been recently released and is available to anyone interested in obtaining construction storm water and SESC related certifications.
The series is a completely updated set of instructional videos aimed at providing the information needed to become a certified construction storm water operator. Presented in four parts, the series describes how to inspect construction sites as well as instruction on the hydrologic cycle, soil erosion and sedimentation control measures, relevant rules and regulations, and inspector responsibilities. The video series has been completely overhauled with new footage, narration, examples, and graphics to provide better instruction and an improved user experience.
Uncontrolled soil erosion and sedimentation can cause devastating impacts to lakes, rivers, streams, and wetlands, and demonstrates the importance of having an operator certified to inspect the site and develop SESC control plans in accordance with applicable rules and regulations. Anyone interested in obtaining the certification must complete and submit an exam and application along with the appropriate fee. In addition, applicants will need to have watched the video series and reviewed designated self-study materials.
To provide a more interactive experience, EGLE will also be hosting a webinar featuring the new video series, which will include discussion as well as a question-and-answer session with EGLE construction storm water staff. The webinar is free to attend, and anyone interested may register.
The new construction storm water operator video series can be viewed online for free.
