Essentials of CDOT Erosion/Sediment Control and Stormwater Management Classroom and Practicum (Classroom and BMP Outdoor Facility)

This interactive class and practicum focuses on CDOT specific permits (Construction Stormwater, MS4), policies, specifications, standards, and practices with respect to stormwater and erosion/sediment control. The class includes visual demonstrations of the implementation of specific BMPs.  Students will be involved in the installation of various BMP control features and then observe the features functioning with simulated storm events.  Instructors will facilitate these exercises to ensure all participants complete the training with an adequate understanding and working knowledge of the specific BMP application, installation, and maintenance procedures. Taught primarily by CDOT employees, it is meant to familiarize the student with elements of the CDOT water quality/construction program and give them access to information, reference materials, resources, periodic bulletins, etc.
