Stormwater BMP Inspection & Maintenance Workshop
About the program:
Stormwater BMPs must have annual, and sometimes more frequent, inspection and maintenance to perform as intended. Maintenance includes hydrologic and water quality function, landscape functions, and consideration of impacts on human health and safety.
The workshop will help:
- Understand stormwater, how it affects water quality, and regulations associated with it;
- Understand stormwater management devices used in Maryland and how they function; and
- Understand inspection and maintenance requirements of each stormwater practice.
Date & Location:
October 17, 2018
8 AM to 5 PM
Anne Arundel County Utility Operation Complex
445 Maxwell Frye Road
Millersville, MD 21108
Registration fee is $140 and includes breakfast, break service, and lunch.
