EPA will use your registration information solely for this event. We will not share your information with any third party.
The objective of this course is to provide the basic regulatory framework and technical considerations that support the development of wastewater discharge permits required under the National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) program. The course was designed for permit writers with about six months to two years of experience in the NPDES program, but experienced permit writers wanting a refresher course and other water program staff wanting to learn more about the NPDES program also are welcome.
As a foundational course, the training does not address in detail specialized topics such as industrial and municipal stormwater, concentrated animal feeding operations, and vessel discharges. For more information on these specialized topics, please visit EPA’s NPDES Web site at www.epa.gov/npdes.
PLEASE NOTE: Do not make non-refundable travel arrangements until you receive confirmation that your registration has been accepted.
