Illicit Discharge Detection & Elimination Training
Required To Be Taken Annually
As part of the National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) Permit, Pasco County is required to train, on an annual basis, employees on how to identify and report conditions in the stormwater system that may indicate the presence of illicit discharges and illegal dumping. Employees that require this training are Public Works field staff, Utilities field staff, Suvey field staff, Project Management field staff, Emergency Management field staff,Fleet Maintenance staff, Building Inspectors and Engineering Inspectors. After the initial Illicit Discharge Detection & Elimination Training is taken the employee is required to take refresher training each year.
To comply with the county’s NPDES Permit requirements for illicit discharge training, the Stormwater Management Division has prepared a 20-minute video titled “Pasco County Illicit Discharge Detection & Elimination" to train county employees.
The county’s NPDES Permit requires distribution of information concerning the Multi-Sector Generic Permit for Stormwater Discharge Associated with Industrial Activity (62-621.300(5), F.A.C.) to employees who work in the field. Click here to review the MSGP Permit presentation (PDF).
After watching the video and viewing the MSGP Permit presentation, please click here to fill out a short form. This information is needed for Stormwater Management to keep track of the number of employees who watched the video. We need this number to include in the county's annual NPDES Permit report.
