Water Quality Compliance and Wastewater/Stormwater Permitting in Louisiana

This new ½-day course is intended for environmental professionals responsible for water quality permitting and compliance management for their facilities. The course covers essential topics such as water permitting and compliance; storm water permitting and compliance; spill prevention, control and countermeasures (SPCC) planning and compliance; wetlands permitting; and other Clean Water Act (CWA) programs. SPCC will be briefly discussed.

Join us as we cover wastewater and stormwater permitting mechanisms in Louisiana. We will discuss individual as well as general permit options, and provide general guidance on applicability. We will also briefly discuss recent regulatory changes and proposed changes to the definition of “waters of the US” and implications on the permitting programs.
