Free July 29 Webinar to Discuss Storm Water Compliance
With the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency tightening the screws on job-site storm water permitting compliance, NAHB is holding a free webinar on July 29 to give builders and land developers the information they need to cut through the maze of overlapping, confusing and cumbersome regulations so they can increase compliance and reduce their risk of enforcement action and high-dollar fines resulting from unscheduled inspections.
The webinar, presented by NAHB’s Land Development Committee with support from the Environmental Issues Committee, will give participants an overview of the regulatory framework as well as practical tips on how to submit storm water permit applications, develop storm water pollution prevention plans and survive inspections.
They will also learn about the latest trends and best management practices in storm water management.
"How to Get Through the Stormwater Regulatory Maze: Understanding the Alphabet Soup of BMPs, LID, TMDLs and SWPPP Processes" will begin at 1:00 p.m. on Wednesday, July 29.
The webinar speaker is:
- Jennifer Hildebrand, CPESC, CPSWQ, of Weis Builders, a third-generation, family-owned builder of multifamily commercial and mixed-use projects. At Weis Builders, which has offices in Minnesota, Illinois, North Carolina and Texas, Hildebrand specializes in compliance issues, inspection programs, program design and site plan reviews.
