The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers provided planning assistance for river and riverfront recreation along 99 miles of the Great Miami River corridor in Ohio, from the city of Sidney in Shelby County to downstream of the city of Hamilton in Butler County. To accept the planning assistance offered by U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, the Miami Conservancy District and Montgomery County successfully enlisted the participation and financial support of 15 river corridor stakeholders including cities, counties, and park districts. The Miami Conservancy District and Montgomery County recognized the potential to maximize riverfront investments and benefit all communities by approaching the river corridor as one connected, regional asset.

SWPPPs must include several sections that detail the nature and activities at the site, proposed sediment and erosion control practices, storm water management practices and other pollution controls proposed for the site. Failure to include any of the required information is a violation that can be penalized up to $32,500 per day per violation. It is therefore necessary to ensure that all the requirements are known and understood prior to preparing and implementing a plan.

This webinar provides practical and realistic measures for complying with the EPA’s most recent requirements for storm water discharge permits issued for construction activities and highlights guidance and training materials released by the EPA to assist those involved with SWPPP preparation.

  • Learn the basic requirements of the USEPA Construction General Permit
  • Understand the required sections of a SWPPP
  • Discuss where to find valuable tools for SWPPP preparation and guidance
  • View a sample plan provided by the USEPA

Who: Engineers, regulatory personnel, and plan reviewers will benefit from the examples and practical advice presented in this webinar.

OUTLINE

  • Overview of USEPA Construction General Permit
  • Required sections of construction SWPPP
  • Construction storm water best management practices
  • Terminating permit coverage
  • Review of sample SWPPP

The Dayton ASCE chapter will once again be participating in TechFest at Sinclair Community College. TechFest is a 2-day STEM outreach event to expose children of all ages to science and math outside of the classroom. ASCE will be hosting a booth in which children can participate in hands-on demonstrations of civil engineering concepts. We are seeking volunteers in two hour increments to lead a fun and easy demonstration (gum drop dome) and share their experiences in civil engineering with the students. If you are interested in volunteering or would like more information, please contact Amy Moore (amoore@LJBinc.com or DaytonASCE.ymg@gmail.com). No prior experience is necessary. Teams of both ASCE Section members and UD student chapter members will be staffing the booth.
