Basic Plan Reading: The Rosetta Stone for Source Control Inspectors

Do your eyes glaze over when engineering drawings are placed in front of you, or do you hear gibberish when an engineer talks to you? Are you responsible for regulating the discharge of wastewater pollutants from industrial and commercial sources but don't understand drawing information? Then, this is for you!

Learning Objective(s):
After participating in this session, attendees will be able to:

  • Identify a set of plans/drawings.
  • Point out major elements of a set of drawings - drawing list, legends and abbreviations, scale, plan/section views, details.
  • Identify, locate, and analyze specific source control features in a set of plans/drawings.
