The workshopwill have a "train the trainer" approach, but also allow us to experience the workshop as an attendee as well. Material was developed by a partnership of the Builders Association of the Twin Cities and the MPCA: their goal being to remove barriers and change behaviors. The workshop utilizes an actual Stormwater Pollution Prevention Plan for "Imaginary Hills Development" by Developer Smallville Development Co., LLP. Training also includes sections on handling the costs of erosion/sediment control and the enforcement process. The South St. Louis SWCD is coordinating to bring this training to you as:

  • MS4s (engineers, stormwater/erosion control program/ordinances, etc)
  • Educators and stormwater professionals
  • Contractors and excavating companies, especially those interested in training programs for employees

We've arranged for the course and materials to be FREE for all attendees. We are limited to 30 attendees, so don't delay signing up.
