Got SWPPP? originated over four years ago with a group of interested person's wanting to see storm water educational training offered in their community. Got SWPPP? has since transformed into a program that not only assists Municipalities in meeting their outreach requirements, but also the Construction Industry in meeting their training and compliance needs. Got SWPPP? has also become a net-working opportunity for vendors, service providers, and participants who attend.
Our Got SWPPP? program has a proven track record for good-solid storm water education. Please check out our Got SWPPP? program, we believe you will find it informative, refreshing, and superior to any other program offered today.
The California State Water Resources Control Board (SWRCB) is now implementing training requirements relating to the Construction General Permit which became effective July 1, 2010, for storm water discharges associated with construction and land disturbance activities. By September 2, 2011, individuals developing and revising SWPPPs must obtain certification as a Qualified Storm Water Pollution Prevention Plan Developer (QSD), while individuals implementing best management practices and/or conducting site monitoring, sampling, and reporting activities must obtain certification as a Qualified Storm Water Pollution Prevention Plan Practitioner (QSP).
The first step in becoming a certified QSP and/or QSD is to take a CASQA-approved training course. WGR Southwest, Inc. has been offering these courses since 2010. To learn about all our upcoming training Click here.
