Training for NPDES
NPDES Training Programs:

As part of the National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) permit, Pasco County is required to train, on an annual basis, certain employees and County contractors who work in the field, to learn how to identify and report conditions in the stormwater system that may indicate the presence of illicit discharges and illegal dumping. The County is also required to train certain employees and contractors on proper spill prevention, containment, response techniques and procedures. County employees, who are Engineering, Building and Utility Inspectors, are also required to take the Erosion & Sedimentation Refresher training each year.

A. Illicit Discharge Training:
