Stormwater Management Accreditation Unit

This Unit was compiled by Pam Simmons during the 2013 National EPA Stormwater Conference, hosted by USGBC Cincinnati Regional Chapter. Readers will receive 11 credits total toward continuing education. All credits in this unit are self-reported to GBCI. The US EPA is currently developing a quiz, which will be available soon. Readers who pass the quiz will be given a certificate as proof of reading through the unit.

To get oriented, read the workshop goals first: EPA Workshop Session Topic Points. An additional glossary of terms related to stormwater management is available here: Stormwater Management Glossary.
