Description

Presented by:

Partners for a Clean Environment (PACE) & the Keep it Clean Partnership (KICP)


Storm drains lead to creeks. Pollutants like chemicals, salt/deicer, paint, grease and oil from work activities can enter storm drains and contaminate our water.


This FREE training will provide practical tips for preventing stormwater pollution in every day operations and help employees recognize illicit discharges. After the training, participants will know how to:

  • Clean and prevent leaks and spills
  • Cover and maintian materials stored outside that may leak or run off
  • Implement good housekeeping practices within operations
  • Keep wastewater from vehicle, building, or surface washing from reaching storm drains or creeks
  • Proper application of chemicals, pesticides, fertilizer, paints, stains, or salt/deicer products as to not over-apply and create stormwater pollutants
  • Report illegal discharges to the proper local authorities

Designed Especially For:

  • Storm drainage and street maintenance operators
  • Municipal field employees (permanent and seasonal)
  • Property managers
  • Pressure washers, hood cleaners, carpet cleaners, grease haulers, painters, and window washers
  • Landscaping and lawn care companies
  • Concrete workers
  • Utility construction workers
  • Individuals directed to attend through an enforcement action
  • Anyone interested in protecting water quality!


Attendees will have the opportunity to have their questions answered about impacts on water quality and to become certified in stormwater pollution prevention to ensure compliance with stormwater regulations.
