NYSDEC-Endorsed 4 Hour Erosion and Sediment Control Required Trainings

The District currently does not have any NYSDEC-Endorsed 4 Hour Erosion and Sediment Control Required Trainings scheduled at this time. Please check back later or join our mailing list for email notifications for our next training.

Qualified inspectors and trained contractors must have 4 hours of training in the principles and practices of erosion and sediment control endorsed by the NYS DEC. This training is not required for individuals with a CPESC, LA, and PE certification. Upon completion of the course, each participant will receive a NYS DEC Stormwater Training Number on a certificate and wallet card good for 3 years. This course cost $100.00 per individual attending and there are no refunds.

Western NY Stormwater trainings in 2019 include:



Class Description
SWPPP Preparation
and Review



This class will explore the preparation, review and implementation of Stormwater Pollution Prevention Plans (SWPPP). This class will review all of the required elements of partial and full SWPPP’s, including site planning, Erosion & Sediment Control, hydrology, good housekeeping, post construction management and maintenance. Preparation and review checklists and class examples of residential, commercial, MS4, and MSGP SWPPP’s will be provided.

Wet Pond Design



This class will examine the various components of a wet pond system, and review design elements needed for the proper operation of ponds. Working with a specific pond site, we will begin by establishing the tributary drainage areas and associated hydrology. We will then determine the various pond storage volumes and complete the design of an outlet structure to manage the flows.

Floodplains and Watershed Hydraulics



This class will discuss the importance in being able to adequately model and predict flood plains and floodways as climate change continues to influence flooding conditions. The Hydrologic Engineering Center's River Analysis System (HEC-RAS) computer program is a powerful tool developed by the US Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) to model river, stream and reservoir hydraulics, and is used by Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) to create the community Flood Insurance Rate Maps (FIRM’s). This workshop will provide a hands-on introduction to using the HEC-RAS modeling techniques to generate hydraulic profiles and to analyze and map flood plains and floodways using actual site conditions..
Stormwater and the
Multi-Sector Permit 



The class, which will be co-presented with NYSDEC and Andy Sansone of Monroe County, will review the specific MSGP sectors, SWPPP preparation, and Best Management Practices (BMP). The preparation of the necessary forms to obtain and support MSGP permit coverage (Notice of Intent, Annual Certification Report, and others) will be presented, and the relationship between the MSGP and the MS4 permit will be explained. Specific sector, site, and BMP design examples and problems will be provided.
