Stormwater Practices and Maintenance Core Course

This curriculum was developed to provide a uniform, publicly available, research-based stormwater core curriculum for stormwater managers and educators to:

The course module can be used to train staff. It consists of three chapters and an overview. The first chapter, Stormwater 101 (Understanding stormwater runoff), covers stormwater fundamentals, including how stormwater is generated, the relationship between development and stormwater, and the impacts of stormwater on human health. Chapter two delves into stormwater management practices with an introduction to their purpose and function. Chapter three focuses on the specifics of stormwater maintenance.

Future modules are being developed to provide in-depth information on stormwater practices that consider site assessment, design and implementation (including how to work with contractors), and writing a request for proposals (RFP).
