Description/Abstract: 

Following on the success of CASQA’s first CGP Ask the Regulator session in 2013, this session will provide an interactive opportunity for conference attendees to meet and engage with Regional Water Board construction site inspectors. The session will be led off by two or three short presentations by the inspectors on things they see when reviewing monitoring data, inspecting projects during construction and inspecting projects prior to approving the Notice of Termination. Inspectors will provide insights on problems and challenges common to many project sites. The overview presentations will be followed by an extended question and answer session. Participants are encouraged to bring their questions about CGP challenges and interpretations to get the perspective of inspector from several regions. This panel session is designed to be highly interactive and provide the participants with an opportunity to interact directly with inspectors.
