Illicit Discharge Training
TMACOG Stormwater Coalition and the City of Oregon are partnering to present a training session on how to detect and eliminate illicit discharges and spills to area waterways. Illicit Discharge Detection and Elimination (IDDE) is a duty of a municipal stormwater manager and a federal permit requirement. Ohio EPA also requires annual staff training on stormwater best practices.
IDDE training is valuable for stormwater managers in villages, cities, and counties, professional engineers, health department employees, and emergency responders. The workshop is free, but registration is required. The last day to register is October 15. Space is limited.
Thursday, October 17, noon – 4 p.m.
The City of Oregon Municipal Complex
5330 Seaman Rd, Oregon, OH 43616
The program includes both classroom and field work. The agenda will cover Ohio EPA requirements, emergency spill response, evaluation of home sewage treatment systems, IDDE tools for mapping discharge locations. Field work will include video inspection, smoke and dye testing, tracking sources, and safety concerns.
