CONNECTICUT OFFICE OF HIGHER EDUCATION WELCOMES STORMWATERONE.COM 

Feb 24, 2013

(MERIDEN, CT. February 23, 2013) – StormwaterONE.com announced today that their stormwater management credentialing program has been approved by Connecticut’s Office of Higher Education (CTOHE).

The Office of Higher Education provides consumer protection for students and potential students at private occupational schools and hospital-based institutions in Connecticut. Schools, such as StormwaterONE.com must meet statutory requirements in order to be approved to operate in Connecticut by the Executive Director of the Office of Higher Education.

As part of the approval process, StormwaterONE’s Qualified Compliance Inspector of  Stormwater (QCIS) and Qualified Preparer of Storm Water Pollution Prevention Plans (QPSWPPP) online certificate programs were required to be reviewed by Connecticut’s Department of Energy and Environmental Protection (DEEP).

"It's really exciting to see our program elevate to the next level at such a critical point and time in the stormwater management industry. As a company, we want to disseminate the importance of the Clean Water Act initiatives and train as many people as possible,” stated Derek Gould, Publishing Coordinator at Stormwater ONE. Derek also went on to say, “Having the CTOHE approve and validate our program will only suit Stormwater ONE better to tackle the evident stormwater compliance conundrum we are seeing throughout the country.”

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