USA: DEP Sponsors Sedimentation Control Inspector’s Class
The City of Brooksville is hosting a free Stormwater Erosion and Sedimentation Control Inspector’s Class sponsored by the Florida Department of Environmental Protection today and tomorrow.
The goal of the program is to protect Florida’s waters by encouraging the proper design, construction and maintenance of erosion and sediment controls during construction, and to assure the proper long-term operation and maintenance of stormwater systems after construction is completed.
The class is primarily to provide training to private and public employees in various construction-related fields, however, permit reviewers, public works personnel and engineers can also benefit from this program.
“The sediment and erosion control program is an important public education tool that helps reduce nonpoint source pollution,” said Tom Frick, director of the Division of Environmental Assessment and Restoration. “Encouraging construction personnel to implement these practices reduces the amount of polluted runoff reaching Florida’s waters.”
