Important Upcoming Educational Opportunity

Demonstrating and Achieving Progress in Reducing Pollutant Loads
Hilton Orlando - Orlando, Florida
September 8, 2017  -  9:00 a.m - 4:00 p.m

Join the Florida Stormwater Association in Orlando for a comprehensive overview of strategies to comply with Part VIII of the MS4 permit. Part VIII requires that cities and counties discharging to a priority TMDL waterbody document progress toward reducing pollutant loads. MS4s with adopted Basin Management Action Plans must follow the conditions of the BMAP.  MS4s discharging to a priority TMDL waterbody without a BMAP  must develop and implement a prioritization plan that identifies the waterbody to target, the waters or outfalls to be monitored, and the implementation of structural and non-structural BMPs to reduce pollutant loadings.  The Seminar will help MS4s identify approaches to comply with Part VIII of the MS4 permit and demonstrate progress in reducing loadings to priority TMDL waterbodies. 
Visit the Seminar Page for all the details including fees, hotel and continuing education information.
