Attendees will learn about the impacts winter maintenance has on stormwater, lakes and streams. The training will teach how to reduce these impacts through adoption of more efficient practices.
This 4½ class is taught by two instructors: an environmental professional and a hands-on maintenance professional.
An optional test is offered at the end of the class to earn the MPCA Level I Certification in Winter Maintenance. The certified individuals are then listed on the MPCA website.
Who Should Attend:
· city park departments
· property managers
· private maintenance companies
· plow drivers
· anyone involved in winter parking lot or sidewalk management
You will learn how to reduce environmental impacts without changing your level of service. By understanding the factors that affect anti-icing and deicing effectiveness, you can learn to use them more efficiently and save money. Addressing customer expectations and legal issues are also discussed.
The entire class is geared toward integrating science into practical winter maintenance techniques and attitudes.
