NC Cooperative Extension North Carolina Cooperative Extension, 1450 Fairchild Rd # 6, Winston-Salem, NC 27105, United States
— 3 days away

Communities across NC must manage rainfall that runs off roads, streets and parking lots. This runoff is called stormwater. To manage stormwater, many treatment devices, called BMPs, have been built. These BMPs include: wet retention ponds, bioretention areas, swales, stormwater wetlands, permeable pavement, rainwater harvesting systems, proprietary devices, and level spreaders. BMPs must have annual, and sometimes more frequent, inspection and maintenance to perform as intended. Maintenance includes hydrologic and water quality function, landscape functions, and consideration of impacts on human health and safety. Many communities across North Carolina are now requiring annual inspection, and if called for, maintenance of BMPs. BMPs are not managed as standard landscape features, as they are water quality treatment devices, and specialized training is needed to perform inspection and maintenance activities.

The goals of the certification workshop are to:
- Understand stormwater, how it affects water quality, and regulations associated with it.
- Understand stormwater management devices used in North Carolina and how they function.
- Understand inspection and maintenance requirements of each stormwater practice.

Registration Fees:
-Early Bird Registration (if registering 2 weeks in advance)
Professional Rate: $215
Government/Non-Profit Rate: $160

-Regular Registration
Professional Rate: $265
Government/Non-Profit Rate: $210
