The City of Steamboat Springs Engineering & Construction Services Department is gearing up for its 2016 construction inspection season and contractors can expect to see an increase in enforcement of stormwater regulations to help prevent pollution to the Yampa River and its tributaries. To help prepare the construction community to comply with these regulations, the City is sponsoring a Stormwater Management and Erosion Control Training on March 31st from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm in Steamboat Springs.
The introductory training program will focus on stormwater management and erosion control based on Stormwater Discharges Associated with Construction Activity General Permit under the Colorado Discharge Permitting System program (CDPS). All SWMP administrators, landscapers, inspectors, and contractors, and others responsible for the proper installation, maintenance, and inspection of Best Management Practices (BMPs) are encouraged to attend.
The training will take place in Citizens Meeting Room at Centennial Hall - 124 10th Street, Steamboat Springs, CO. The cost to each participant is $50.
