NWA Pre-Construction Stormwater Education Program
In Northwest Arkansas, local municipal construction stormwater inspectors have been frustrated with stormwater regulation non-compliance and repeated conversations about violations with improper sediment and erosion control BMP selection, installation and maintenance. Many claim an ignorance to the regulations to avoid consequences of non-compliance. In response, the NWA Stormwater Education program developed a construction stormwater education program for contractors, developers, and persons responsible for inspecting and maintaining stormwater controls on a construction site to be shared during pre-construction meetings.
Below are a few of the resources and materials developed or supplied for the meetings:
Ground Control - Stormwater Pollution Prevention from Construction Sites (ExCal Visual's website)
Stormwater Discharges from Construction Activities (EPA website)
ADEQ Construction Stormwater Permitting (ADEQ Website)
