TURNER CONSTRUCTION SELECTS STORMWATER USA.COM AS STORMWATER MANAGEMENT TRAINING PROVIDER

Aug 27, 2012

(MERIDEN, CT. August 27, 2012) – Stormwater USA.com has been chosen by Turner Construction as its educational partner for the provision of its EPA-mandated stormwater management training program.

On August 27, 2012 Turner Construction signed a consent agreement with the EPA as a result of a clean water act violation related to construction stormwater runoff. The consent agreement mandates that Turner Construction provide ongoing erosion and sediment control training to all stormwater managers, contractors, and subcontractors on a yearly basis.

Andrew Demers, President of StormwaterUSA.com, stated, “We are pleased to have been chosen as Turner Construction's training partner. We have several clients that have been through this very long and costly legal process and hope that others will take notice of the EPA's focus on water quality standards." Demers also went on to say, "If you're engaged in land disturbing activities, it's time for those involved to seriously start considering instituting compliance programs for stormwater regulations.”

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 USA.com 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.
