Book Description

Filled with tables, checklists, worksheets, and sample plans, Storm Water Discharges is a unique, nontechnical guide to the full spectrum of storm water issues. Written in a language accessible to everyone, this guide offers a practical, nuts-and-bolts approach to compliance with EPA's complex storm water discharge requirements. In addition to a step-by-step treatment of regulatory requirements, the book also focuses on the technological aspects of compliance, from storm water sampling to estimating discharge flow rates and volumes. Its coverage of the storm water permit process is comprehensive and includes the types of permits in existence, how to submit a permit, and technical guidance on the sampling and monitoring requirements needed to obtain a permit. This is an excellent guide for all firms - and individuals within firms - required by law to meet strict discharge requirements.
