Permanent Stormwater BMP Inspection and Maintenance Workshop

The Colorado Stormwater Center provides a 2-day training workshop on permanent stormwater BMP inspection and maintenance.  All stormwater BMPs require regular maintenance to remain operating as designed. In this 2-day training workshop, we teach participants how to recognize BMP maintenance needs and how to perform maintenance correctly.  The workshop includes 8 hours of presentations/discussion in a classroom setting, a 4-hour field trip and a 2-hour written exam (optional).  Participants that successfully pass the written exam receive certification from Colorado State University Extension and are recognized on the Center’s website.

Who Should Attend: Government (city/county/school) maintenance personnel, permanent BMP inspectors, MS4managers/coordinators, landscape contractors, property managers, homeowner’s association managers, etc.

Introduction to Green Infrastructure and Low Impact Development Workshops

The Colorado Stormwater Center provides training on planning, design, evaluation, construction and maintenance of green infrastructure (GI) and low impact development (LID) practices. The use of GI/LID practices is growing exponentially throughout the US and represents the new paradigm of stormwater management. Our workshop is set up as a full 1-day workshop meant to introduce stormwater professionals to GI and LID and is taught in partnership with Andrew Earles at Wright Water Engineers. 

Who Should Attend: Government (city/county/school) landscape architects, design engineers and design reviewers, MS4 managers/ coordinators, municipal planners, property managers, homeowner’s association managers, etc.

Please contact us to discuss additional or private training workshop opportunities.
