Workshop Description:

The purpose of the Certified Stormwater Plan Reviewer (CSPR) program is to educate personnel on the proper design and review of stormwater and sediment control plans for development sites in order to meet regulatory and environmental requirements. Controlling stormwater flows and preventing sediment-laden runoff not only protects our rivers, creeks, and streams but it is also a trademark of a quality construction project.

This workshop should NOT be confused with the Certified Erosion Prevention and Sediment Control Inspector (CEPSCI) class.

The two-day workshop will:

  • Teach attendees the latest techniques for stormwater and sediment control
  • Introduce a variety of erosion control practices, including the most environmentally effective techniques for various terrain
  • Demonstrate how to review grading and drainage plans, as well as Best Management Practices (BMPs) details
  • Provide an opportunity to meet others involved in land disturbing activities and for attendees to learn how to develop a stormwater and sediment control plan
  • Allow discussion of issues with regulators and learn to complete relevant forms and submissions in an efficient and thorough manner
  • Help prepare attendees for the exam which is part of the process for becoming a SCDHEC Certified Stormwater Plan Reviewer

Who Should Attend:

  • Individuals who wish to become certified by SCDHEC as Stormwater Plan Reviewers
  • Design engineers who would like to learn more about stormwater management plan development in order to improve their submissions
  • Individuals who were certified in the last five years and who need to take continuing education courses to continue their certification

This program is not developed to teach engineers, architects or others about the design of Best Management Practices (BMPs).
