Free Stormwater Facility Training for Contractors to be Held October 6

The Fairfax County Maintenance and Stormwater Management Division (MSMD) manages an inventory of more than six thousand stormwater management facilities and is responsible for ensuring that these facilities are maintained properly and function as designed.

Proper operation and maintenance of these stormwater management facilities helps reduce the volume and improve the quality of stormwater runoff. Stormwater runoff is not conveyed to a wastewater treatment plant, and therefore flows directly from the county's drainage system, known as the MS4 (Municipal Separate Storm Sewer System) to ponds and streams and ultimately to the Chesapeake Bay.

The new stormwater ordinance (effective July 1, 2014) requires long-term operation and maintenance of stormwater management facilities. To assist contractors who may be hired by the county, homeowners' associations (HOAs) or commercial enterprises, MSMD has organized a full day of free training.

The training will cover facility maintenance issues and common remedies and qualifies participants for eight contact hours towards the Virginia Stormwater Management Program certification offered by the Virginia Department of Environmental Quality.

The free class is scheduled for:

When: Tuesday, Oct. 6, 2015, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Where:Fairfax County Government Center
Herrity Building, Rooms 106 and 107
12055 Government Center Parkway
Fairfax, VA 22035
