Stormwater Pollution Prevention

All life depends on a steady supply of fresh water, but studies show 18 percent of pollution in lakes and 35 percent of pollution in estuaries is caused by contaminated storm water. Every facility must train its workers to prevent runoff contamination by practicing proper storm water protection procedures. This video training explains the proactive steps to ensure your facility does not contribute to the pollution problem. It focuses on essential good housekeeping practices to prevent industrial waste from being picked up by rainfall and snowmelt. Viewers learn why secondary containment vessels play a critical role in protecting surface water, and why using and maintaining these structures are vital.

Measures to minimize materials’ exposure to the elements are discussed, including skirted loading docks with roofs or overhangs, indoor storage and transfer methods, and keeping materials away from storm drains and gutters. Viewers learn to properly protect wastes and materials with waterproof tarps when outdoor storage is required. The Video On Demand demonstrates dry clean-up measures for liquid, gel and dry non-hazardous materials mishaps, and storm drain protection methods.

Viewing this training gives workers an appreciation for the role they play in keeping storm water runoff safe, so drinking water, recreation areas and wildlife habitats are kept clean and pure.
