ECOSS delivers tools and techniques to help businesses navigate stormwater permit compliance

Industrial Stormwater Education

Industrial Stormwater Workshops are offered in Washington and Oregon, and designed to meet the needs of all levels of stormwater management, from just starting out to seasoned stormwater professionals.

These professional workshops provide you with ideas and potential solutions for stormwater BMPs and sampling techniques to help you meet NPDES permit requirements, and allow you to ask tough questions in a confidential setting.

Classes are taught by local experts in compliance with Washington’s Industrial Stormwater General Permit (ISGP) and Oregon’s Industrial Activities Permit (1200Z).
