What Kind of Stormwater Training Is Required?

The answer will depend on the State your facility is located in – different States will have different training requirements. However, Caltha generally sees three categories for training:

a) SWPPP Awareness Training. This is “high-level” training which may be given to all employees, and covers basics of stormwater program and facility controls that would apply to any employee.
b) Stormwater Training. This training would be addressing employees whose day-to-day work activities relate to the specific controls and procedures the facility has established in its SWPPP, such as dock workers who might be involved with spills.
c) Stormwater Permit Compliance Training. Employees who have been assigned specific compliance tasks, such as conducting inspections, collecting stormwater samples, need to be trained to conduct their tasks.
