10 Steps to Construction Site Stormwater Compliance

As you well know if you or your construction site has disturbed soil, there is a wide range of penalties that a court can impose in relation to environmental compliance offence… some in excess of $1 million!

How can you avoid these penalties, and still remain profitable?

Join Straight Talk: Strategies for Environmental Compliance author Jennifer Hildebrand as she demystifies the stormwater regulations affecting construction projects and outlines ten straightforward, but essential strategies for stormwater compliance and profitability. In this webcast, Hildebrand will discuss through photo documentation, project manager interviews, and site environmental penalty examples the common regulation and site misconceptions, and the common techniques that expose construction sites to a high level of risk. Through discussion of the qualitative and quantitative data collected from these real-world case studies, Hildebrand will outline the risk-aversion and profit-focused strategies for compliance that – while common sense – many construction sites and projects do not take full advantage of.

In this webcast, Hildebrand will demystify the stormwater regulations affecting construction projects and how you can keep compliant. Working from her acclaimed manual, Straight Talk: Strategies for Environmental Compliance, Hildebrand will discuss and outline in straight-forward, construction-focused language the top ten effective strategies for maintaining an environmentally compliant project while keeping a risk-assessment and profit-focused mindset.

Learning Objectives:
Webcast attendees can expect the discussion and education of the following learning objectives:

  1. Understanding of common regulation and site misconceptions exposing construction sites to high levels of risk.
  2. Understanding of the complex the stormwater regulations affecting construction projects.
  3. Understanding of the 10 recommended strategies for stormwater compliance based upon compliance, risk aversion, and profitability.
  4. Understanding of how to determine with a risk assessment mindset the strategies most important in maintaining your environmentally compliant project, and how to implement these.

by Jennifer Hildebrand, MBA, CPESC, CPSWQ
Straight Talk shows us that compliance can achieve significant savings for the owner and big profits for the contractor. It makes the business case for how a profitable transition to environmental compliance for the construction and development industry can be achieved…Hildebrand’s refreshing and crystal-clear approach merits serious attention and has already won support across the regulatory and construction spectrum.

So You Want to Set Up a Stormwater Utility?

The Top Ten Stormwater Utility Launch Failures & How to Avoid Them

Since the nation’s first stormwater utility was established in 1974, many successful stormwater utilities reap the benefits of dedicated revenue to appropriately manage their stormwater needs. But, not all stormwater utilities succeed, especially those set up from failure from the start! Join Andy Reese, PE, LEED AP, as he explores the top ten ways that stormwater utilities fail to get off the ground successfully, and more importantly…how to avoid these.

In this webcast we’ll discuss the process of establishing stormwater utilities and how stormwater utilities are often set up for failure from the beginning. Within this discussion, Reese will outline the top ten ways stormwater utilities fail to get off the ground, the drivers for and results of these failures, and how to design a comprehensive launch plan that successfully avoids these issues to ultimately provide your community with dedicated revenue, safe and attractive neighborhoods, ecological balance, and clean water for years to come.

Learning Objectives:
Webcast attendees can expect the discussion and education of the following learning objectives:

  • Understand the stormwater utility establishment process, and how stormwater utilities are often designed for failure from the beginning
  • Learn the key components of a stormwater utility establishment and launch plan
  • Learn the top ten reasons stormwater utilities fail to get off the ground, their drivers, and results
  • Learn how to design a successful comprehensive launch plan that avoids the common failures

* Webcast presentations are scheduled for approximately one hour with a 15-20 minute question and answer session to follow. Webcast may exceed scheduled time.

Crowdsourcing your next Project

Crowdsourcing is changing the game…and everyone is playing. With the success of crowdsourcing brands (e.g., Starbucks, Kickstarter, Airbnb, etc.), everyone from government to small businesses are looking to harness the worldwide online community's power to engage advocates, introduce new ideas, change behavior, AND fund programs.

Join returning speaker Melanie Goetz to explore how you can use crowdsourcing to spread your message, engage and enable your audience, and fund your next project.

In this webcast we'll start with an in-depth look at crowdsourcing: what it is, its key elements, and how big brands to local non-profits are using it to leverage the power of the masses to amplify their message, gain support, and fund their campaigns. We'll take a look at the worldwide potential of crowdsourcing, the challenges involved, and how to know when it's a good fit (or not). Goetz will then walk us through the five essential elements of a successful crowdsourcing plan, the pitfalls to avoid, and how you can create and implement an effective crowdsourcing program for your next project. And finally, we'll take a tour of crowdsourcing "in action" with a look at real-world case studies demonstrating the best (and the worst) of crowdsourcing, and how – when done right – crowdsourcing can engage and enable your advocates and volunteers, introduce new ideas and messages, tap new sources of funding, and transform your communications and public outreach.

Learning Objectives:
Attendees can expect the discussion and education of the following learning objectives:

  • Understand crowdsourcing, its key elements, opportunities, challenges, and applications.
  • Learn the five essential elements for a successful crowdsourcing program.
  • Learn how to create and implement an effective crowdsourcing campaign.
  • Learn what works (and doesn't) and how to evaluate if crowdsourcing is a good fit.
