Bioretention and Tree Maintenance for Municipal Service and Streets Dept. Staff
April 12, 2017 @ 9:00 am - 11:30 am
The NE Ohio Storm Water Training Council invites you to participate in a 2.5-hour workshop on the long-term maintenance of bioretention and trees. These workshops will be taught by staff at Cuyahoga Soil & Water Conservation District and feature both a classroom and field component. We will provide overviews of these storm water control practices and the maintenance items necessary to keep them functioning at their peak. As the use of green infrastructure to manage storm water proliferates in NE Ohio, it is vital that your staff be aware of their form, function and maintenance needs. Attendance will count toward meeting the pollution prevention and good housekeeping training requirements of your municipal separate storm sewer system (MS4) permit. As a reminder, regulated small MS4s are required to provide training to municipal staff that conducts operations such as MS4 system maintenance at least once per year. When installed on public properties, bioretention becomes a part of the MS4 and must be managed appropriately to ensure continued function.
Attendance is free, but registration is required. Click on the following links to register:
