Andrea Braga and Ganesh Krishnan Co-Present at 2017 Environmental Connection Conference in Atlanta

Andrea Braga (Massachusetts) and Ganesh Krishnan (Georgia) will be co-presenting at the 2017 Environmental Connection Conference of the International Erosion Control Association (IECA) at the Cobb Galleria Centre in Atlanta, Georgia in Room 113/114 at 9:10 a.m. on February 22, 2017.  

Andrea and Ganesh will co-present with Mark Goldsmith, Director of EHS Compliance at Walmart. Their presentation, entitled "Establishing a Compliance Audit Program for Your Company" will provide an overview of how to setup a compliance audit program that helps ensure construction sites meet state and federal requirements, including the Construction National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES).

The Environmental Connection Conference is IECA's premier educational event and routinely draws thousands of people engaged in the erosion, sediment control, and stormwater industry. It combines intense, full and half-day training courses with topic-focused technical sessions and the largest expo of its kind.

Presentation Description

Our team has been conducting one of the largest private audit programs in the United States, having performed construction site stormwater inspections at over 2,000 sites in all 50 states, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico over the past 10 years for a large private retail developer. Using this experience, we have developed a course that will provide an overview of how to setup a compliance audit program for your company that will help ensure your construction sites are meeting the requirements of your state or federal Construction National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) permit program.

Learning Objectives

  • List the key compliance items in a NPDES General Permit
  • Describe the main components of a properly developed Stormwater Pollution Prevention Plan (SWPPP)
