Kentucky Stormwater Training Program Abstract The Kentucky Stormwater Training Program outlines a training structure to improve permit compliance amongst Kentucky Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (KPDES) Municipal Separate Storm Sewer System (MS4) Permittees. The design of the proposed training program promotes resource accessibility, knowledge retention, and content adaptability. Moreover, the proposal specifically focuses on addressing the need for a cohesive, standardized structure for addressing specific Minimum Control Measures related to priority pollutants (i.e., nutrients, sediment, bacteria) and pollutant load reduction within MS4 programs throughout Kentucky. In regard to priority pollutants, nutrients and nutrient load reduction will be a primary emphasis. The primary objective of this proposal is to facilitate collaborations amongst government agencies, academics, and private entities to develop and share content that would aid in compliance and improved water quality management across the state. Under this program, the following major objectives will be achieved: • Statewide Stormwater Outreach Strategy and Workshop Series: Facilitated discussion on outreach to develop a statewide stormwater outreach strategy. • Limelight Series: Facilitated presentation series to highlight approaches of successful programs to permit requirements. • Illicit Discharge Detection and Elimination Interactive Workshop: Hybrid online and field workshop to train inspectors. • Fundamentals of Erosion Prevention and Sediment Control Workshop: online course on basics for those responsible for land clearing, construction, or development activities. • Stormwater Plan Reviewer Workshop: Self-paced online course to address stormwater planning, regulations, infrastructure design, and hydrologic science. • Good Housekeeping / Pollution Prevention Training Manual: Manual to guide the development of operation and maintenance plans and training programs.
