Course 5: Stormwater Sampling & Monitoring consists of four video lessons that explain different types of sampling and monitoring activities, sample collection and handling practices, basics of using monitoring instrumentation, laboratory analyses, basic data review and interpretation, and reporting practices. The course is for airport or contractor staff who are responsible for conducting stormwater monitoring to comply with NPDES stormwater permit requirements. Note: Because airports are so varied in size and configuration, monitoring programs are tailored to each facility’s requirements. Therefore, you will need to locate and refer to specific permit or regulatory requirements that apply to your airport.
