Many municipalities and government operations must comply with EPA requirements for employee training in Stormwater, IDDE, and SPCC regulations. Our step-by-step training videos show municipal employees the proper ways to ensure these laws are followed and the environment is protected. Municipal Storm Sewer System operators (MS4s) are the frontline in the fight against stormwater pollution, and it is vital they set the example for others with proper pollution prevention techniques. There are 6 titles offered.

Municipal (SPCC) Spill Prevention, Control, & Countermeasure
This training video program details the SPCC regulation for municipal employees and contractors. Subjects covered in the training program are the SPCC regulations, SPCC plan, spill clean-up, operations, maintenance, oil transfers, used oil, and discharge procedure protocols. (27 minutes)
Stormwater Pollution Prevention for MS4s: "Rain Check"
Regulated municipalities and other municipal separate storm sewer system (MS4) operators must prevent pollutants from entering their storm drainage systems. One element of this requirement is preventing stormwater pollution by municipal facilities such as fleet maintenance shops, bus barns, sanitation facilities, parks and street sweeping operations. This program shows employees how to practice good housekeeping, spill response, materials management, vehicle fueling and washing and the other BMPs profiled in the “National Menu". Program versions run between: (19 minutes and 31 minutes)”:.
(IDDE) Illicit Discharge Detection & Elimination: "A Grate Concern"
Municipal separate storm sewer system (MS4) operators are required to train employees and contractors on control measures for stormwater pollution prevention. One such control measure is illicit discharge detection and elimination (IDDE). This kit is designed to train government employees and contractors on IDDE. The video focuses on the hazards of illicit discharges and shows employees how to spot them. (14 minutes)
(IDDE) "Public Education & Outreach"
One of the requirements for permitted municipal separate storm sewer systems (MS4s) is to reach out to the general public and inform them about stormwater pollution prevention. One area where many public outreach programs focus is on illicit discharge detection and elimination (IDDE). The public needs to know what an illicit discharge is, not to discharge any non-stormwater into the MS4, how to spot evidence of past illicit discharges and what to do if they spot such evidence. There are five videos of varying
run-times: from 30 seconds to 10-1/2 minutes.
Stormwater for Construction BMPs: "Ground Control"
This employee training kit is designed to show employees how erosion, sediments and other potential surface water pollutants are controlled at construction sites. The program focuses on Best Management Practices (BMPs) that are widely used at most construction sites including: silt fence, stabilized entrances/exits, drop inlet protectors and others. The program illustrates how these BMPs work and how they can fail. (14:30 minutes)
Municipal Stormwater Pollution Prevention: "Storm Watch"
Regulated municipalities are required to train their employees on stormwater pollution prevention and BMPs. This training video helps regulated municipalities (Phase I and Phase II) train their employees as required under their Permit. The program focuses on BMPs that are important to many municipal operations such as good housekeeping, spill response, materials storage and handling, landscape maintenance and street maintenance. Employees working in fleet maintenance, garages, parks, recreation facilities, street maintenance and other departments can all benefit from this information.
"MPG Max" - 25 Tips for Better Fuel Economy
Employers and their drivers everywhere are concerned about the high cost of gasoline and the environment. This training video shows drivers how to improve gas mileage, so they save money at the pump and keep the air cleaner. The tips given in this video are easy to put into practice. This course shows how routine vehicle maintenance is very important, since a dirty air filter or fuel injector will cut down on the MPG. Regular maintenance can improve fuel economy by up to 4%. Another tip is to keep tires inflated to the recommended pressure. Under inflated tires can reduce fuel economy by up to 3%, since they have more rolling resistance which forces the vehicle to use more fuel. By applying the driving practices in this course, drivers will improve their fuel economy by up to 15%, and will decrease air pollution.
