As development occurs, communities across Ohio require stormwater control measures (SCMs) to be installed to remove pollutants from stormwater runoff and mitigate flooding. These facilities are often installed and forgotten. Due to the lack of maintenance, SCMs will not provide their intended benefits, potentially flood urban areas, contribute to stream bank erosion and loss of real estate and allow pollutants to enter our waterways without treatment.
More importantly, these failures cost landowners more to repair then if they had performed consistent inspections and maintenance. Most communities rely heavily on the private sector to maintain these stormwater control measures. This course will provide an overview about how SCMs function and the maintenance required to ensure safety and functionality over the long-term.
