The North Carolina Department of Environmental Quality (NCDEQ) offers Wow Stormwater Webinars 11 a.m.-noon the third Wednesday of each month. Stormwater Professional Katherine Knight of WithersRavenel will join Jeanette Powell of the North Carolina Division of Energy, Mineral and Land Resources (DEMLR) for the Feb. 17 discussion.
WithersRavenel’s assistance allowed Newton to be the first municipality in the state to have an approved Phase II MS4 (Municipal Separate Storm Sewer System) permit and plan in the new audit/permit cycle. Knight will describe how she and Stormwater Department team members crafted Newton’s Stormwater Master Plan (SWMP), designing it to fit the new permit. She will also discuss creating strong BMPs (Best Management Practices), which are plan components that correspond with overall goals for stormwater quality protection.
Phase II NPDES (National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System) MS4 Permits primarily cover mid-sized municipalities in the state. WithersRavenel is working with other clients on various Phase II planning aspects, including Knightdale, Clayton, Kernersville, Wendell and Weaverville.
The Wow Webinars are a good opportunity for municipalities to learn more about building a successful MS4 program,Knight said.
Professional Development Hours are also available for webinar participants. Registration is open until 24 hours before the event. For more information on this webinar and the NCDEQ series, click here.
