President at LaForge & Associates, LLC

Mr. LaForge primarily focuses on the areas of municipal services; road construction; stormwater management; flood control; hydraulics and hydrology; domestic water supply, distribution and treatment; and wastewater collection and treatment. His extensive experience includes all aspects of the above design areas, from collection of the initial raindrop through domestic use and wastewater treatment to recycling and reuse. Mr. LaForge has an extensive training background in all areas of capital improvement programs, municipal implementation programs, inspection techniques and stormwater management. His experience includes the use of geographical information systems (GIS) and modeling software to simulate the collection or distribution system of interest, and the experience to understand why the model does not match the actual system measurements. Mr. LaForge is registered as a professional engineer in Illinois and is a member of the American Public Works Association. He earned his B.S. degree in Agricultural Engineering from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.

Course Title: Complying with Kentucky Industrial Stormwater Requirements

Delivery Method: Live

Course Description: This six-hour live lecture presentation examines federal and state industrial stormwater laws and regulations, stormwater pollutants and total maximum daily loads (TMDLs), stormwater pollution prevention plans (SWPPP), best management practices (BMP), and sampling and reporting.

Learning Objectives:

Learning Objective 1:
Learners will be able to reference and comply with federal and state stormwater laws and regulations regarding permitting requirements and processes.

Learning Objective 2:
Learners will be able to identify common stormwater pollutants and determine the total maximum daily loads of said pollutants that can be received by a body of water and still be meeting water quality standards.

Learning Objective 3:
Learners will be able to assist in creating stormwater pollution prevention plans that identify facility-generated pollutants and means by which they will be managed to prevent entry to nearby bodies of water.

Learning Objective 4:
Learners will be able to implement best management practices to reduce stormwater runoff, reuse stormwater, control and manage stormwater, and respond to extreme weather events.
