MS4 SchoolEach Monday morning during September - November 2016, WGR is offering a class for municipal staff on the Phase II MS4 Permit. We are systematically working our way through the permit. The class is designed to provide a comprehensive review of the permit and is ideal for a staff member who is new to the storm water program or would like a better understanding of the permit. Normally, we charge $20/person for the class. However, during Storm Water Awareness Week the class will be free. You can either attend this workshop/class in person in Lodi or you can watch it online. To view the class online, go to www.wgr-sw.com/MS4School . Those attending in person will need to be present at 9:30 AM. The online broadcast will start at 10:00 AM.Lodi09/26/16 - 09:30 AMMunicipal
Drought-Tolerant Storm SamplingQualifying Storm Event (QSE) sampling opportunities are rare in the midst of California's ongoing drought. Now, more than ever it is crucial for samplers to get it right the first time. The incorporation of Industrial General Permit Numeric Action Levels (NALs) raises the stakes even higher for facilities' to deliver reliable analytical results. You might think sample collection is pretty straight forward, but getting quality samples isn't easy. Preparation, proper equipment selection, and a little sampling know-how build a solid foundation for success. This presentation is packed with useful tips for both the uninitiated and expert sampler alike, including tips on preparing for the "rainy" season and review of sample collection protocols. Emphasis will be placed on pH field analysis including appropriate equipment selection (strips vs. digital meters), proper equipment use, and trouble shooting. This free workshop may serve as part of your annual storm water training program.Rancho Cordova09/26/2016 - 08:00 AMIndustrial

End an ERA: A Discussion on Level 1 Exceedance Response Actions (ERAs) Over a year has passed since the dawn of the new Industrial General Permit and due to the incorporation of Numeric Action Levels (NALs), many facilities discovered that they have moved from Baseline to Level 1 Exceedance Response Action (ERA) compliance status. Important questions to have asked yourself: (1) How did this happen to my Facility? (2) What do I do now? (3) How do I turn back time and get back to Baseline? and, (4) What the heck is a QISP, and do I really need one? Discussion topics include Level 1 compliance activities and timelines (hint, hint - October 1 is an important date), requirements for a return to Baseline, and the potential for Level 2 status. How can a facility bring about an End of an ERA? Sign up today to find out.

Discharge to Recharge: Use of Drywells in Storm Water Management Condor Earth is pleased to partner with Torrent Resources to show how drywell technology may be used as an option for regulatory compliance. This presentation is designed to educate the attendee about the use of drywells as a tool to meet (and exceed) green infrastructure and Low Impact Development (LID) requirements. The mandate to infiltrate storm water on-site can be a big challenge and requires comprehensive subsurface and meteorological (i.e. infiltration volumes) investigations for soil and permeability characteristics. Drywells offer an excellent alternative to traditional, surface infiltration devices. Presenters will focus on how drywells fit into the regulatory, design, and installation environments providing an excellent tool for achieving infiltration when traditional and commonly used methods aren't enough. Fresh water is worth its' weight in gold in California, but if storm water is more of a nuisance than it is a resource, drywells may be an alternative for you.Rancho Cordova09/26/2016 - 10:30 AMIndustrial

How to Identify Your Facility's Watershed, 303d listed items, and TMDLsA requirement for SWPPPs and monitoring programs is to know which watershed your facility discharges to and what impairments and TMDLs are associated with that watershed.
