The Clean Water Act of 1972 had a powerful impact on the evolution of the jobsite management industry. Technology and best management practices in the important business of site drainage have evolved at a rapid rate.
Traditionally, the new construction site model was a simple one. Developers simply disposed of stormwater as rapidly and economically as possible, with no consideration for downstream impacts. Today’ model, which continues to evolve, incorporates environmental stewardship into effective and sustainable solutions. This course will strive to provide attendees with access to important industry innovations in the critical business of drainage.
