Snow and Ice Management Trainings Throughout the Year

February 22, 2019

 

In the winter, we use salts to deice hard surfaces like sidewalks, roads, and driveways. However, it only takes about 1 teaspoon of salt to permanently pollute five gallons of water. Because of the chloride pollution in several waterways in Scott County, the Scott Watershed Management Organization (SWMO) has partnered with the Board of Water & Soil Resources (BWSR) through the Clean Water Land & Legacy Amendment to offer FREE training events that teach snow and ice best management practices that can save money and save our water. Scott County is hosting a series of free workshops on best management practices for managing snow and ice on parking lots, sidewalks and roadways. An optional test will be offered at the end of the workshop to earn Minnesota Pollution Control Agency (MPCA) Level I or Level II Certification in Snow & Ice Control Best Practices. Certified individuals are listed on the MPCA website.  Pre-registration is required. Email mbokman@co.scott.mn.us or call 952-496-8887 to register.

 

Winter Parking Lots/Sidewalks Training
This class is most appropriate for private maintenance companies, property managers, schools, non-profits, and staff & volunteers who maintain parking lots & sidewalks. At the end of class there is an optional state certification exam through the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency (MPCA). It provides individual certification for those that choose to take the optional test after the class and pass it. Individuals who take and pass the test would earn the Level 1 Certification in Snow & Ice Control Best Practices. Certified individuals are listed on the MPCA website.

 

Winter Roads Training – Level I
This class is most appropriate for City, County, State street and highway crews & private companies hired for township road snow removal. This is a state certification course through the MPCA. It provides individual certification for those that pass the test.

 

Level 2 Winter Maintenance Training
This class is focused on winter maintenance leadership. We highly encourage you to take the Level I class before taking this class. It will prepare leaders to get their organization Level 2 MPCA certified.
