No training is currently offered on WQM and NPDES permits. DEP is the best and most appropriate source of this information- material will be developed, training given, questions answered directly by the regulatory authority. Course will provide info on the permit application process and on permits, with emphasis on new NPDES requirements. Students will have a more clear understanding of what is required, what is not required, what is different in recent permits, how and when to report to the Department.
