In light of the continuing concerns about COVID-19 (coronavirus), the Florida LTAP Center will continue to offer all of our trainings via remote instruction. Please visit our COVID-19 web page for updates.

The concept of going about highway & street maintenance in a manner that is environmentally acceptable is of great importance to state and local agencies.  This​ webinar series explores how to perform our routine highway​ maintenance and achieve quality production while being​ environmentally responsible and compliant.​

Topics discussed include: pollution defined, why we should be concerned, general permits, ground water​ protection, surface water management, typical highway​ maintenance operations, work in and around streams,​ waste management, and spill prevention/response.​ This course is designed for supervisors and crew members​ performing maintenance work on the roadway with a​ desire to be environmental stewards.  It is much easier​ and less expensive to prevent environmental mishaps​ than it is to clean them up.​

Each session offers 2.0 PDHs, for a total of 6 PDHs if you attend all 3 sessions.

Please note – space for this webinar is limited, and Florida local agencies are being given first priority!

Upon registering for each session, your registration request will be submitted to the
Florida LTAP Center for approval. You will receive information via email within 3-5
business days regarding your registration status.

Note: Florida LTAP is currently replacing the in-classroom training mentioned in the following short video with a 3-part webinar series.
