Category Sustainable sites

This 3-hour interactive online course gives you the information and action items to assess sites and identify opportunities to usebest management practices in green planning, design and construction. This course will cover: 1) integrated stormwater manageme nt planning, 2) water pollution prevention, 3) construction runoff prevention, 4) surface pretreatments for filtering runoff, 5) c atch basin inserts and water quality inlets, 6) detention and infiltration structures, and 7) constructed wetlands


  • List green building best practices as they apply to stormwater management
  • Discuss a proactive, integrated planning approach to urban stormwater management
  • Define watershed-based drainage master plans and associated policies
  • Explain pollution prevention and source control strategies to minimize damage to water sources and aquatic ecosystems
  • Label water quality inlets to treat the highly polluted water quality volume of the design storm
  • Explain surface pretreatment BMPs to remove sediments, salts, pollution, and debris
  • Describe underground detention structures to temporarily attenuate and store runoff during peak flow periods
  • Label surface and underground infiltration structures within or adjacent to the right-of-way to reduce stormwater runoff volumes and peak flows, improve water quality, and promote groundwater recharge
  • Discuss constructed wetlands - permanent pools of water that are populated by wetland plants and aquatic organisms - to reduce, detain and treat stormwater runoff
  • Use the material to develop your own checklists to improve existing policies and procedure
