Good Housekeeping Measures
Requirements and Best Practices
July 20, 2017 / 10:30 a.m. - 11:30 a.m. (Eastern Time)



The webinar will discuss the requirements of the Good Housekeeping provisions of typical MS4 permits, how they may vary from state to state and will give examples of best practices in implementing this provision of your MS4 permit.  The webinar is FREE for SESWA members but you must Register to Attend.

The Details:
Good Housekeeping is a key element of the MS4 operator’s stormwater management program, primarily focusing on city/county or facility operations.  It requires the jurisdiction to examine and potentially alter their operating protocols to help reduce the pollution that can result from maintenance activities performed on roads, buildings, equipment, or storm sewer systems.  Areas where materials are received, stored, and handled or disposed of need to have appropriate controls in place; of particular concern are fueling areas.  Good Housekeeping measures require MS4 operators to:

  • Develop and implement an operation and maintenance program
  • Include employee training on how to incorporate pollution prevention/good housekeeping techniques into municipal operations
  • Determine the appropriate best management practices (BMPs) for this minimum control measure
  • Review/inspect both facilities and operations to determine if controls are working and adjust plans if needed

The webinar will discuss the requirements of the Good Housekeeping provisions of typical MS4 permits and how they may vary from state to state, and will give examples of best practices in implementing this provision of your MS4 permit.
