Northwest Arkansas Pre-Construction Stormwater Education Program

Why was the program developed?

In Northwest Arkansas, construction stormwater inspectors have been frustrated with stormwater regulation non-compliance. Best management practices are not followed and conversations with those managing construction sites have gone unheeded. Some companies claim ignorance of requirements and best practices to avoid compliance with regulations.

Who is the program for?

This pre-construction stormwater education program is designed specifically for contractors, developers, and persons responsible for inspecting and maintaining stormwater controls on a construction site to be shared during pre-construction meetings.

All the materials needed to obtain a Participated in Training card are located on this page. Once you have completed:

Submit your quiz to either Katie Teague Washington County or Trish Ouei in Benton County and they will review the quiz.

If the score is 80% or above, they will email or snail mail a Participated in Training card that will be valid for two years.

Below are a few of the resources and materials developed:
