Stormwater runoff, which is regulated under Section 402 of the Clean Water Act (CWA), instituted the National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) Permitting Program. This permitting program mandates that any construction project, industrial facility, storm sewer system draining into U.S. surface waters, or agricultural facility engaging in land disturbing activities or discharging wastewater into U.S. water bodies obtain coverage under the NPDES general permit.  All federal and state programs have mandated credentialing standards to perform stormwater inspections and prepare storm water pollution prevention plans.

Stormwater is the leader in computer based stormwater management training and credentialing. As an occupational trade school located in Connecticut, StormwaterUSA has credentialed thousands of stormwater management and enforcement professionals here in the United States and Internationally.
