ECOSS offers practical training and solutions for municipalities facing ever-increasing regulatory requirements.

Municipal Stormwater Education

Courses designed for Operations and Maintenance (O&M) staff and other personnel who directly and indirectly influence program success and water quality.

  • Stormwater experts deliver innovative and professional classes ranging from two hours to two days, depending on the topic
  • Classes provide a foundation of content developed with input from 15 cities and counties, small to large, across Washington state
  • The base content serves as a platform for each municipality to add their own jurisdiction-specific approach to each subject area

Prepare Municipal Staff to:

  • Meet NPDES educational permit requirements for Operations and Maintenance (O&M) and other staff
  • Discuss practical applications and operational considerations of stormwater management from multiple viewpoints
  • Diversify existing knowledge, skills and abilities of staff
  • Enhance municipal stormwater programs with improved communication and understanding of stormwater issues across all departments

“I can take the knowledge I learned today and apply it to my everyday job schedule.”


“Greater awareness and ability to comply. Better able to explain to coworkers and policymakers.”
