Training Sessions on 2013 Stormwater Management Rule and Guidebook

Below is a schedule for public training sessions related to the recently finalized 2013 Rule on Stormwater Management and Soil Erosion and Sediment Control (2013 SW Rule) and the 2013 Stormwater Management Guidebook (2013 SWMG), which provides technical guidance on how to comply with the rule.  DDOE is committed to ensuring that interested stakeholders have the opportunity to participate in training sessions and will continue to add to this initial schedule based on stakeholder and public interest in additional trainings.

Compliance with the District’s 2013 stormwater regulations involves steps and considerations that may be unfamiliar for design engineers accustomed to the District’s old regulations.  If you are struggling with the design of a stormwater management plan, sign up for a free, half hour, one-on-one opportunity to discuss specific site design compliance questions, including the components of a site plan; how to use and interpret the compliance calculator tools; full consideration of standards and specifications; and maintenance responsibilities.  Participants must have completed the General Compliance training. These tutor sessions will not provide determinations, or approvals of products or site designs.

Using the Stormwater Database

This training focuses on using the Stormwater Database in the submission process for DDOE review of Stormwater Management Plans (SWMPs), Soil Erosion and Sediment Control (ESC) Plans, and Green Area Ratio (GAR) Plans, and for participation in the SRC and RiverSmart Rewards programs. The training includes an overview of database functions and exercises to enter mock plans and applications.
