SWPPP is a plan required for any industrial facility that discharges stormwater. The SWPPP identifies potential pollutant sources and describes practices that will be implemented to prevent or control pollutant releases to storm water discharges.
Certified Erosion & Sediment Control Lead (CESCL) is a training and certification program to enhance compliance with the Alaska Department of Environmental Conservation Construction General Permit for storm water discharges. Certified persons become proficient in erosion and sedimentation processes, the regulatory requirements, Storm Water Pollution Prevention Plans, Best Management Practices, inspection and record-keeping. Also, topics that are particular to Alaskan construction, such as cold climate and low and high precipitation challenges. To become certified, an individual must attend the entire course and pass a written exam. The certification is valid for three years. Utility Technologies has employees with CESCL certifications. With so many concerns for the environment, it is important to have employees who understand ADEC and EPA rules and how to follow a SWPPP as to ensure the environment returns to as good as or better than it was before the project.
