Keeping rain and snow melt free of contaminating chemicals groundwater and waterways is everyone's business. Some municipal employees' actions directly affect the safety of the water being discharged into storm sewers. This video training program offers best management practices to safeguard storm water from pollution when working in landscaping or as a groundskeeper.
Covering or putting spill barriers around storm sewers before conducting risky procedures is emphasized. The video covers the importance of good housekeeping as a preventative strategy. Specific risks associated with vehicle fueling, maintenance and cleaning is addressed. Methods of protecting stored chemicals from weather, accidents and exposure are explained. Even seemingly “green” activities, like green space maintenance, can expose storm water to dangerous chemicals and this training explains ways to minimize or eliminate that risk. Illegal dumping, and the legal and financial consequences of it, is explained.
Viewers are exposed to written resources every municipality must have, such as a storm water pollution prevention plan, and are reminded to use personal protective equipment when working with dangerous chemicals. Protecting our water from chemical contamination is a priority for everyone. Make sure your municipal workers are doing a rain check to maintain the quality of the groundwater.
